New Developments in Mental Health

Our understanding of how to treat mental illnesses, and what can contribute to developing mental health problems, is constantly evolving. Join us to hear from experts in the field of mental health and how it has evolved from clinical, neurological, and practical points of view.

We will examine some of the current factors at play in the world today—from the role social media plays in our lives, especially the lives of children and teenagers, to identifying those among us most vulnerable or at-risk of developing mental health issues, and how best to treat those affected.
