The GLAD (Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression) study is looking to understand why some people experience anxiety and depression by exploring the influence of genetic and environmental risk factors on these disorders.

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health disorders worldwide. Findings from this study will be used to help find effective treatments and improve the lives of people experiencing these disorders.
