PARTICIPATION IN FUTURE RESEARCH
We would like to know if you mind being contacted about participating in research in the next few years. Participation would involve an interview and questionnaires that can be done in person, over the phone or online, and we will reimburse you for your time.
Emerging adulthood (the period from around age 18 until the late-twenties) is recognised as a distinct stage of life with unique developmental goals and life transitions relating to social and occupational functioning. It is also a time when rates of common mental health and behaviour problems typically reach their highest point. While emerging adulthood may be a period of vulnerability, it is also a window of opportunity for changing the life course, with research showing that positive development during this period is predictive of a successful transition to adulthood.
ADS participants, you are now adults! We would love to know how you are doing now so that we can link this with the information you provided us during adolescence. We will then be able to investigate whether a range of factors (for example, genetic, neurobiological, psychological and environmental) during adolescence can predict outcomes in adulthood. This will help us to work out how we can help adolescents achieve the best outcomes later in life.
