A map of existing adult ADHD services released

The CATCH-uS team at the University of Exeter have released a map of existing adult ADHD services in the UK. The map was created from survey responses of more than 2,500 young people, parents, health workers and UK commissioners who provided information on services for adults with ADHD in their area, early in 2018.

The map is part of the wider CATCh-uS Project, which focuses on what happens to young people with ADHD when they are too old to stay within children’s services. It aims to establish how many young people with ADHD are in need of services for ADHD as adults, and investigate young peoples, parents and practitioner’s views about the transition process.

Some members of our Family Faculty were part of the working group for the CATCH-uS project.

The Mapping strand of the CATCh-uS Project is funded by the National Institute for Health Research, and is being run in collaboration with the Royal College of Psychiatrists and ADHD support groups:  AADD-UKADHD foundation and UK Adult ADHD Network.
