Grabbing attention to raise awareness of ADHD

attention grabber mindtech sitw concept photoOn the 4th September MindTech launched Attention Grabber, an innovative interactive game which tests the player's attention and aims to raise awareness of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults. The game is now available at the Broadway Cinema in Nottingham city centre and New Art Exchange in Hyson Green for everyone to play. A short film is also available which enables people to learn more about adult ADHD.

Attention Grabber has been devised by researchers at the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) MindTech Healthcare Technology Co-operative (HTC), in collaboration with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust. It is playable through the Screens in the Wild interactive screens in two locations in Nottingham, the Broadway Cinema in Hockley, City Centre and at the New Art Exchange, Gregory Boulevard, Hyson Green (near the Forest tram stop) plus two venues in London.

Attention Grabber is available to play daily at the following times so please visit any of the locations and give it a go! pdfDownload the flyer.
