Participation Opportunity from Kings College London  

Kings College London are looking for Black Caribbean young people aged 16 – 25  with a primary diagnosis of ADHD to interview for a research project.

An important part to this study is the topic of ethnic origin and how it can possibly affect the experiences of young people with ADHD. This impact could potentially show us that ethnic origin can influence ADHD which then influences experiences in areas like family, school, friends, self-concept, and mental health.
