Research project: South Hampshire ADHD register project

The first register of young people with ADHD in the United Kingdom.

We have established an ADHD research register and database of young people (aged 3 to 18 years) who reside in the South Hampshire region. Similar registers exist nationally for diseases and disorders however this is the first register of young people with ADHD in the United Kingdom. This register aims to provide a resource for current and future research into ADHD – its causes and treatment at a number of different levels. The goal of this project is to characterise the clinical, cognitive and neuropsychological features of each consenting individual diagnosed with ADHD and to collect information about exposure to environmental risk factors and the presence of genetic risk for ADHD and associated comorbidities.
The register will provide a central resource of information relating to young people with ADHD in the South Hampshire region. For researchers, this will introduce a central bank of high quality data which is continually audited and updated. For patients and their families, it will potentially reduce the number of contacts received requesting their involvement in future research within the NHS and School of Psychology, University of Southampton. This register is intended to make a major contribution to very large scale studies required to investigate the genetics of ADHD.
