In 1992, the Graves' Disease & Thyroid Foundation (back then called the National Graves' Disease Foundation) participated in a landmark survey regarding emotional and behavioral complaints and Graves' disease. The results of the survey study, which were published in 1996 in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, increased the awareness of the medical community to the neuropsychiatric symptomatology associated with Graves’ disease. The GDATF is honored to participate in a follow-up to this survey to help assess the current state of our Graves' community.
