ADHD and Associated Disorders

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.

Centre for Population Neuroscience and Precision Medicine (PONS)

The Centre for Population Neuroscience and Precision Medicine (PONS) aims at establishing and analysing big neuroimaging genetic datasets to precisely identify brain mechanisms underlying behaviour, and their genetic and environmental mediators, thus enabling prediction and stratification of mental disorders.

The Centre for the Humanities and Health

A multidisciplinary forum interfacing the humanities, health, science & society, researching patient subjectivities and lived experiences in relation to illness and health services

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 Stress & Development Lab is led by Andrea Danese, Professor of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. 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.
