Research for and by people with ADHD
If you have ADHD, or a family member or friend is diagnosed with ADHD, you want to know as much about it as possible. However, many questions are still unanswered because they have not been researched yet. We provide a possibility to have your research questions answered.
What subjects should be researched?
What is your most important question? Should there be more research into the connection between ADHD and studying? Would you like to know more about the effects of ADHD on your work? Or are you interested in diets?
Let us know what your research questions are by filling in our questionnaire. We collect the results every two months and publish them online. That way, the preferences of the ADHD community are accessible to everyone. Researchers looking to fund their projects, take those preferences into account.
ADHD Smartphone App
Help us create an ADHD Smartphone App!
This team wants to create a Turkish smartphone app for assessment of ADHD in adolescents and adults. This app will be used by people with ADHD, their parents and their practitioners.
With this app we can collect data on how you feel during the day, which will help you become more aware of the effects of ADHD and which treatment works best for you. Such an app already exists in Dutch, and we want to make it available to Turkish people as well.
Your help is needed to build this app. Please support us with a donation!
ADHD and Bipolar
Stabilizing mood swings in ADHD and Bipolar Disorder
In this study, we investigate the connection between ADHD and Bipolar Disorder. Our goal is to gain a better understanding of the factors that influence mood swings.
That way, we can help people with ADHD and Bipolar Disorder to stabilize their moods and reduce depression and manic episodes.
The more we learn, the better we can help people. Please help make this research possible by making a donation!
Are you a researcher looking to fund your project? We offer you a forum where you can present your proposal to the community and raise the required fund in three months. Read how it works here.
Raising money (crowdfunding)
The research proposals are presented here. If the proposal raises sufficient funds, the research project can go ahead. Do you support the subject and would you like the project to be executed? You can make a donation here to support your favourite cause.
Have you ever wondered whether you could trust the results of a survey? ADHDFund is completely independent from the pharmaceutical industry. The only ones contributing to the fund is the ADHD community. That is you and me!
These research projects have been fully funded:
Partnership with ADHD World Federation
