Overview: Participating in research can help give a voice to groups whose experiences may not be fully appreciated. In this post is information about some research being conducted to learn more about university students with ADHD. If that is you, consider participating. Reading time ~ 1 minute.
A researcher by the name of Lucy Green who is a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Honours) student at the University of Canberra, contacted us with a study she is conducting.
Her research aims to fill a gap in the literature by understanding the experiences of Australian university students living with ADHD and the challenges that cause the most impairment to daily life.
The research involves an online interview and short survey. There is a bit more information in the image below.
Her thesis research project has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the University of Canberra (HREC – 11599), so you can be confident the questions and process have been vetted.

Yes, participating in research does take up some time, but I’ve generally found that when I participate in research, I get something from the process as well. The chance to self-reflect, to tell my story or to advocate on behalf of a group to which I belong. If ADHD is part of your everyday reality as a student, then your experiences and thoughts and reflections will be incredibly valuable.
