The research team at Cardiff University, led by Dr Sharifah Shameem Agha and Dr Kate Langley’s work,  both affiliated staff of the Wolfson Centre, worked with children with the condition, and their families and carers, to create the animation which discusses what it’s like to have ADHD.

Young people’s mood and wellbeing

Here Dr Rhys Bevan Jones talks about mood, well-being, and depression in young people – including how low mood or depression might present, possible underlying reasons and approaches to prevent and manage difficulties. It is in the context of the young person as well as their families/carers.

He also discusses a digital programme called ‘MoodHwb’, created to support mood and well-being, and developed with young people, families, carers and practitioners at Cardiff University. A trial of the programme is planned soon in Wales and Scotland.

Rhys is a psychiatrist and researcher at the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Section, Department of Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences, Cardiff University.
