ADHD research:

Together we can make a difference

Help us learn more about ADHD by taking part in our research.

About our study

We are trying to understand more about the causes of ADHD. To help us do this, we are looking for volunteers of all ages to take part in our research.


By comparing information from those who have ADHD with information from those who have not, we hope to learn more about the factors contributing to ADHD.


Parental/guardian consent will be needed for those under 16 years old.

Are you over 18?

If you are 18 or older you can take part online. It should take no longer 15 minutes to complete.

What will it involve?

A member of our team will contact you on the phone to ask some questions. They will also send you a pack to provide a spit sample to helps us look at the genetics of ADHD.

How long will it take?

It should take less than an hour. We may also send you some questionnaires to complete and return in your own time.

NCMH is led by Cardiff, Swansea and Bangor Universities. We are funded by Welsh Government through Health and Care Research Wales.
