4366.0 Roundtable on Topics in Mental Health

Tuesday, October 28, 2008: 4:30 PM
Leaders in a range of interrelated mental health domains will be presenting their work in a roundtable format, which is ideal for interactive learning.
Session Objectives: Learners will be able to describe the existing literature on the teratogenic risks of antidepressant medications to the fetus and risks of not treating depression during pregnancy, identify major issues involved in a children's mental health campaign in Massachusetts, identify key demographics and status of homeless and runaway youth, articulate the factors surrounding the implementation of evidence-based practices and need for readiness assessment, define mental health literacy, identify the basic elements of community-based participatory research, articulate primary prevention strategies for parents with mental illness and their children, identify the scope, limitations and potential for "psychoeducation."
