Depression and anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric disorders worldwide. To improve our understanding of the genetic risk factors behind anxiety and depression, we need to recruit thousands of participants. We therefore invite you to take part in the Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) Study and to join the largest study of individuals who have experienced or are currently struggling with depression and/or anxiety. The project is led by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) BioResource Centre Maudsley (part of the NIHR BioResource) and researchers at King’s College London.
