Welcome To Our Site!
The AD/HD Clinic at UNCG was founded in 1996 by Dr. Arthur D. Anastopoulos, a nationally recognized expert in AD/HD and a Professor in the Department of Psychology. Since its inception the AD/HD Clinic has remained continuously under Dr. Anastopoulos' supervision and direction.
The mission of the AD/HD Clinic is to:
- Provide state-of-the-art mental health care services and education to the community, Triad region, and the state
- Increase understanding of AD/HD through clinical research
- Give clinical practice training to clinical psychology graduate students and to other health care professionals in North Carolina
All three mission objectives are woven together to form a cohesive whole. Thus, knowledge gained from research informs clinical practice, clinical practice enables clinical research, and clinical practice and research enhance clinical training.
The AD/HD Clinic contributes directly to the efforts of the University of North Carolina system as it strives to:
- be a leader in improving the health and wellness of individuals in North Carolina
- provide highly skilled training to health professionals who live and work in our state
- offer direct outreach to parent support groups and other members of the community
- improve the mental health and academic functioning of children K-12
- foster inter-institutional research collaborations
