Wednesday, June 2nd 2021

7pm-9pm Berlin time (UTC+1)

On Zoom

Join us for the pilot meeting of our Neurodivergent Peer Support Group! After a short survey exploring an interest in having such a group, we’re delighted to announce our first meet-up. The aim is to get to know each other and explore ways how we can support and empower each other in a respectful way outside of the official medical structures. (More information on Neurodiversity here and here)

This group will be held in English.


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.


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.


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.


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.
