On Wednesday, November 7, 2018, from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST, join the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) for a webinar on irritability in children, discussing common signs of severe irritability, how parents can help a child with severe irritability, treatment options, and ongoing research conducted at NIMH.
In recognition of National Depression Screening Day, NIMH is hosting a Twitter chat on depression, a common but serious mood disorder. The event will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018, 11:00AM―12:00 PM ET. This chat will cover the signs and symptoms, risk factors, and treatments for depression.
Research tells us that severe stress can cause all kinds of adverse health outcomes, including an increased risk for mental illnesses. Dr. Gordon discusses how NIMH is trying to move the field of stress research forward, toward the translation of basic findings into clinical advances.
The goal of this project is to understand the long-term impacts of pre- and perinatal drug and adverse environmental (e.g., parental neglect, physical abuse) exposures on brain development and social/behavioral/academic achievement and how these in turn impact risk for substance use and mental illness.
