The Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) Study, led by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Mental Health BioResource and researchers at King’s College London, in collaboration with researchers at Ulster University, University of Edinburgh, and Cardiff University, is a project set up to support studies exploring risk factors for depression and/or anxiety.
Depression and anxiety are the most common mental health disorders worldwide. In the UK, 1 in 3 people will experience symptoms during their lifetime. The GLAD Study aims to better understand depression and anxiety in order to find effective treatments and improve the lives of people experiencing these disorders.
To take part in the GLAD Study you must:
- Have experienced clinical anxiety and/or depression during your life
- Be aged 16 and above
- Live in the UK
Recruitment for the study has now been extended to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
To begin signing up you just need to provide your name, phone number, email address and a password. You will be sent a notification email to check we have the best way of contacting you.
After this, the GLAD Study enrolment process consists of four steps:
- Reading the Information Sheet
