ADHD and Associated Disorders – Asherson & Kuntsi

Our research focuses on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders that often co-occur with ADHD. We take a developmental approach, studying the disorders and traits from childhood to adulthood.

Centre for Anxiety Disorders & Trauma

The Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma (CADAT) was founded by Professors David Clark, Anke Ehlers and Paul Salkovskis in 2000. The current Joint Clinical Directors are Dr Blake Stobie and Professor David Veale.  CADAT has made clear contributions in the fields of research, clinical care, education and training; the tripartite mission of King’s Health Partners.  Our Centre is a leader in research, training and the clinical treatment of anxiety in the UK.  CADAT is also a psychological therapy outpatient service based within the South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and is the main contributor to research into anxiety disorders in the Trust.

Autism and Development Team

The Autism & Development Research Group aim to increase the understanding of cognitive and behavioral development in individuals with autism and the factors that influence this over time.  

Causal Analysis & Evaluation Group

The Causal Modelling Group comprises statisticians and methodologists at King’s College London interested in drawing causal inferences from study data. Group meetings are organised by the Department of Biostatistics at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience.

Centre for Global Mental Health

The Centre for Global Mental Health (CGMH) aims to address inequities by closing the care gap, and to reduce human rights abuses experienced by people living with mental, neurological and substance use conditions, particularly in low resource settings with a view to contributing to a world where all people living with mental, neurological and substance use disorders can live a life of meaning and dignity.

Centre for Implementation Science

The Centre for Implementation Science is home to a team of expert implementation and improvement science researchers, including health economists and statisticians. This team are investigating how best to help ‘implement’ evidence-based practice and clinical research within health services nationally and internationally.

Danese Lab: Stress & Development

The Lab aims to understand how stressful experiences in childhood affect development and later health, and how to best support children who had such traumatic experiences.

Developmental Psychopathology Lab

In the Developmental Psychopathology Lab, we investigate how stressful environments exacerbate underlying genetic vulnerabilities to affect children’s development. We are particularly interested in the impact of psychopathology in caregivers (and associated risks) on children’s antisocial behaviour, and the relative role of prenatal and postnatal risk exposures.

DISCOVER Research Group

Adolescence is a key period for the prevention and treatment of depression and anxiety, as half of lifetime mental health problems start by the age of fourteen. However, few evidence-based treatments exist and current services are limited. Additionally, help-seeking is very low, particularly among black and minority ethnic groups.
