ADHD Services Mapping Survey

(Closing on Saturday, 31st December)

This is a mapping survey designed to find out which adult ADHD services are out there for young people with ADHD aged 18 and over to transition into from children’s services. This means that this survey can be answered by any person of any age who has knowledge of ADHD services, whether they have ADHD themselves or not and whether they are a parent/carer or not.

The survey can be found here where you can tell the researchers about adult ADHD services in your area. It asks no more than 8 questions and should take less than 5 minutes to complete.

The survey is anonymous and people’s responses will contribute to the creation of a map detailing adult ADHD services currently available in the UK – or equally important the lack of adult services.

Survey on Mind Wandering

We would like to invite you to complete an online survey investigating the impact of mind wandering and if it leads to differences in our experiences of education, occupation, and creativity. Everyone’s mind wanders, but we all do it to a different degree, so what is its impact?

Severe mind wandering that just won’t seem to stop and feels uncontrollable could also be associated with disorders such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). By exploring the relationship between these things we can better understand the impact of mind wandering and the extent to which it affects peoples’ lives.

Take the survey now online - it takes 10-15 minutes and there is a chance to win one of five £50 Amazon vouchers.

If you have any questions or require more information, please contact Florence Mowlem: email florence.d.mowlem@kcl.ac.uk (MRC Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) Centre, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London).
