I like the idea of doing a workshop for those taking stimulants, but I am having a hard time figuring out how it could be scheduled. Do you require this before stimulants are prescribed? My concern is that there aren’t enough students being put on stimulants at similar times to garner enough students to have a group (as stimulants are also the last line of defense that is taken by psychiatry at my institution, with strong historical support for attention concerns or testing required). Can you say more about this group and how it is organized?
