ADHD was previously seen as a childhood developmental disorder, which meant that adult mental health services have not been set up to support ADHD patients who become too old for child services. This webinar will present the results of the first in-depth study of the transition of ADHD patients from child to adult health services in the UK.

The webinar will explore:

  • how many young people (which ADHD) are in need of services as an adult
  • what services are available for young adults with ADHD
  • how ADHD stakeholders experience transition from child to adult services

In this webinar, Professor Tamsin Ford will describe the findings from this NIHR funded, interactive mixed method study and place them in the wider context of service organisation for transition and for neurodevelopmental disorders.

By the end of this webinar, delegates will:

  • have evidence to estimate the likely number of young adults in their population who will need transition
  • understand the availability of services for young adults with ADHD and how to access them
  • gain increased  awareness of the impact of untreated ADHD at this crucial life-stage and the need for continued treatment for those that need it
  • understand the likely points for drop out from treatment and how the experience of transition could be improved to prevent loss of service.

Tamsin Ford CBE is a Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, which she joined in October 2019. Her academic work focuses on the effectiveness of interventions and the efficiency of services in relation to the mental health of children and young people, with a particular focus on the interface between the education and health systems.

She has been involved in all three national surveys of child and adolescent mental health, has run and supported several large trials of school-based interventions and is an epidemiologist by academic background. She completed her PhD at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London and moved to Exeter where she set up and led the Child Mental Health Research Group between 2007 and 2019.
