Study Details

Are you a Black and/or Latina/e/o adolescent age 12-17 who has struggled in school, with mental health, attention, and/or a diagnosis of ADHD?

This study will focus on Black and/or Latine adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD; ages 12-17) because youth in this group are understudied yet at extraordinarily high risk for socioemotional difficulties and health inequity. The goal of this study is to gather data on health/wellbeing values and beliefs, healthcare usage, community engagement, discrimination, and personal experiences for Black and/or Latine adolescents suspected of having ADHD.

This research is being conducted by Dr. Zoe R. Smith in the Department of Psychology at Loyola University Chicago.

What does it look like to take this survey?

You will compete one initial survey and monthly follow up surveys based on your experiences with mental health, school, and other life experiences.

How much money could I win?

For every survey you complete, you will be entered into our raffle prize ($20)!

Why should I participate?

Being involved in this study will help us to further our understanding of how mental health affects the lives of teens today.
