Join us for the next meeting of our Neurodivergent Peer Support Group! (More information on Neurodiversity here and here)
This group will be held in English.
WHAT IS A PEER SUPPORT GROUP?
Peer Support Groups are a chance for a group of individuals with a common experience (in this case being neurodivergent) to collaborate to solve problems they share. We will be able to voice our challenges, and then be giving each other feedback, advice and ideas to help us conquer them. This is a great opportunity to help someone struggling with the same challenges or share how you overcame them.
This is the pilot meeting in our newly founded Neurodivergent Peer Support Group. Our aim is to co-organise these meetings as a group and maintain its horizontal structure, so anyone is welcome to step up as a facilitator. No prior experience with facilitation is needed. It’s a valuable skill for anyone and we will teach you how to do it in the safe space of the group.
HOW IT WORKS
We’ll kick off the the group by having a structured conversation led by facilitators where everyone can introduce themselves, and share either their struggles or experiences around living their life as a neurodivergent individual. We’ll then brainstorm possible ways how to support each other and decide on the future development and structure of this group. There will be a 10-minute access break in the middle of the session.
WHO IS THE PEER SUPPORT GROUP FOR?
aequa Peer Support Groups give folks with certain affinities (for example: similar interests, challenges or experiences) the chance to offer mutual support in the form of peer-to-peer mentorship, feedback, advice and discussion. This also gives a forum to wrestle with how those with shared challenges or advantages can help to build a more equitable future for all.
WHO CAN JOIN?
The Neurodivergent Peer Support Group is for anyone who is neurodivergent regardless of official diagnoses or lack thereof. Neurotypical people with neurodivergent partners or kids are welcome too.
This meetup is for anyone with an open, respectful, and collaborative mindset.
Prior attendance of a PSG meetup or aequa event is not required.
