Please read below information regarding research that you may wish to participate in;

Dr. Cliodhna O’Connor is a researcher from University College Dublin and is conducting a research project called “Prevalence and Experience of Diagnostic Shifts in Youth Mental Health”.

If you have a child aged 11 years to 18 years who has previously experienced a change in their diagnosis Cliodhna would like to invite the family to take part in this study.
