    Thanks, Fire. This looks very good. It's very important that this is using an unbiased, representative community study complete with a medical examination necessary for diagnosis (I assume they will be carrying out the required blood tests and psychiatric assessment too).

    I like the way they are including school attendance as an objective measure are well as performance (to cover the scenario where people turn up but are too ill to study) and extra-curicular stuff too (covering the scenario where people just about get by at school but everything else in their life falls).

    Prof Lenny Jason has often designed some of the smartest studies but in the past they have not always been big enough to get robust results because of problems securing funding. Hopefully the $2 million this time should cut it.

    Lenny Jason led the best community based prevalence study of Adults, so this is a good decision. :)
