Depression is a global public health crisis and impacts more than 300 million people worldwide. Youth and adolescents are particularly impacted, with rising rates of mental illness and suicide rising among high school and college students. When left untreated, its impact can be devastating for patients and their families. Please join us for a symposium aimed at battling stigma, disseminating information about the latest evidence-based care, and helping build interdisciplinary collaboration.
