Helen Eke

Associate Research Fellow - CATCh-uS

Kath Maguire

I am currently an Associate Research Fellow for the CATCh-uS project – Children and Adolescents with ADHD in Transition from Children’s to Adult Services. The project focuses on what happens to young people with ADHD when they are too old to stay within children’s services and has three main streams; a 6 month surveillance study of young people with ADHD, a qualitative study exploring views and experiences of service users, and a mapping study to establish location of services.

Previous to this, I joined the University in 2010 as an Associate Research Fellow for the Helping Children Achieve project. This study aimed to find out what type of parenting programme would best support children at risk of poor outcomes due to antisocial behaviour. In 2012 I moved on to the Healthy Lifestyles Programme (HeLP), a PenCLAHRC supported project which is a novel school based obesity prevention intervention. I was responsible for the running of the project in schools across Devon.
