Peer-to-peer support group for students AD(H)D

Published: 03rd February 2022 Last updated: 26th September 2022

Are you a student with AS(H)D? Get in contact with other students and learn from individual coping strategies.

  • Do you experience problems with studying due to a lack of focus or concentration? 
  • Is it hard for you not to space out? 
  • Does your mind wander all the time?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed and anxious that your work is not good enough?
  • Do you feel your work needs to be always 100% perfect, or you rather not do it at all?
  • Do you have issues starting a task even though you know how important it is?

What is a peer group and what do I need?

A peer group is a safe space and meeting point for people with similar issues they want to solve or learn how to cope with. Therefore, this group has no clear educational framework and is rather a room where you can be understood and learn from each other.

Students from all subjects regardless of the year of study are welcome. Please note that it is not necessary to be diagnosed with AD(H)D. We are convinced that everyone should be able to find support if they struggle with similar issues.

Information about the group 

Wednesday mornings, in the Academia building, Room A18, there is the opportunity to meet your fellow students and exchange information and advice. In cooperation with a Student Psychologist (Margreet van Laarhoven) and a Dean of Students (Dorine Roestenberg), we are building a small group to get in contact with each other.

Furthermore, there are online meetings taking place for those who cannot attend Wednesday morning or want to attend more than once per week.

WhatsApp group and Canvas page

If you are interested but cannot join at the time mentioned, please sign up anyway, because there is also a WhatsApp group and a Canvas page in which a lot of information is shared.

To gain access or if you have any questions, you may send an email to our student coordinator Jonas Festor via peer-to-peeradhd@tilburguniversity.edu.
