As I continue on my journey to learn more learn about mental illness I find that awareness events are very helpful. I came across this particular event while doing research. I just had to share. The focus will be the developing brain. Below is an excerpt from the NIMH website regarding the event.
On May 10, 2012 as part of National Children’s Mental Health Awareness, NIMH is sponsoring a videocast panel of children’s mental health researchers. Panelists will discuss neuroscience research findings related to: teen brain development, cognition and emotional and behavioral growth, and treatment for teens.
