The aim of the STRATIFY project is to identify biological and social features that may be common to different mental health conditions. We expect that the results of this study will be important in developing better treatments for people who have mental health difficulties, for example by tailoring treatments to precisely target those symptoms that cause suffering in each individual patient, and by reducing treatment side-effects.
Who can be involved?
- Adults aged between 18-25 years of age
- People who were diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as a child
