A Childhood Darkened by Severe Anxiety Becomes Brighter
"I know from personal experience...getting anxious kids help early can be crucial in heading off more serious problems later in life."

Scott Stossel, the editor of The Atlantic magazine, tells his story of struggling, coping, and living a very productive life.

002. PCORI and ADAA: Promoting Patient-Centered Research for Anxiety and Depressive Disorders
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
This 90-minute workshop will describe the mission and unique funding opportunities and requirements of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), with a specific emphasis on relevance to research on anxiety and depressive disorders.
“I’m back!” That was the phrase I’d said to myself starting in middle school when my malaise lifted and a cycle of joy came around. I seemed to live in a world moving in slow motion. It was only when “I was back” that I returned to normal life speed. This slow-to-normal oscillation went on well into my thirties. But I had no idea I was depressed.
Every Tuesday and Thursday (3:00-3:30 pm ET) in October experts at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University Department of Psychiatry will discuss diagnosis, new treatments, and resources for adults and children with OCD. More information and schedule.
