Welcome!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THIS STUDY. AT THIS TIME, WE ARE NO LONGER RECRUITING PARTICIPANTS.

 

Thank you for your interest in our study examining the mental health of mothers of children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This website is designed to give you some more detailed information about the study to see if you are still interested in participating.

Who are the researchers?

The primary researcher is Lucy Buchholz, M.A., who is conducting this research for her dissertation at George Mason University under the supervision of Jerome Short, Ph.D.

What is the purpose of the study?

The goal of this study is to investigate the effect of children's ADHD symptoms, stress from daily hassles, optimism, and maternal attributions about children's behavior on the mental health of mothers of children with ADHD. 


Who can participate?

To participate, you must be:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • A mother of a child (aged 5-12) who has been diagnosed with ADHD by a provider in the community
  • Willing to share your email address
  • Able to access the internet to complete the survey now, and again in one month

If you meet the criteria, we would be glad to have you in the study!

Why participate?

With your help, we can improve our understanding of the impact of having a child with ADHD on mothers. Participants who complete the study will receive $10.
