Let’s Talk about ADHD

NCMH collaborated with the MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics to create a new resource for children newly diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

The ADHD research team at Cardiff University worked with children with the condition, and their families and carers, to create the animation which discusses what it’s like to have ADHD. Read more about the animation.

Please email letting us know the name of your organisation, how you’re sharing the video and your target audience, and, if possible, any feedback you received about it. We may be able to offer additional resources and opportunities to take part in ADHD research.


3MDR: Virtual reality treatment for veterans with PTSD

Researchers and clinicians at Cardiff University and within NHS Wales have completed a randomised controlled trial of a new therapy, known as 3MDR (multi-modular motion-assisted memory desensitisation and reconsolidation). 3MDR is based on a combination of virtual reality exposure as well as eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing, which is an established psychological treatment for PTSD.

The 42 military veterans who took part in the study and had previously had no success using conventional forms of treatment for their PTSD symptoms.

The trial was funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) and supported by Health and Care Research Wales.
