Public Forum: New Treatments for Schizophrenia and Bi-Polar Disorders

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

This public forum will focus on the latest research on causes and treatments of these conditions, including counseling, yoga, and integrated treatment. Experts will also discuss the diagnosis and stigma of post-traumatic stress disorder. A panelist who lives with one of the disorders will share his experiences, as well as his role as an advocate for mental health.
The panel, moderated by the university’s Psychology Program Director Helen Consiglio, PhD, includes: Matthew A. Munich, PhD, LICSW, adjunct professor at Salem State University School of Social Work; Ann K. Shinn, MD, MPH, co-director at McLean On Track and director of Clinical Research at Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder Research Program at McLean Hospital; Howard Trachtman, BS, CPS, CPRP, co-founder and president emeritus, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Greater Boston Consumer Advocacy Network; and Joseph Gonzalez-Heydrich, MD, director of the Developmental Neuropsychiatry Clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital.
