Sharing Knowledge Through the Cundill Centre Conference
On June 4, the Cundill Centre once again welcomed psychiatrists, family doctors, clinicians, policy makers and others working in child and youth mental health to gather and learn from one another at the New Directions for Adolescents and Young Adults with Depression: A #CundillatCAMH Conference.
In his closing remarks, Dr. Peter Szatmari, Director of the Cundill Centre for Child and Youth Depression, thanked participants for their collaboration throughout the workshops, and spoke of the importance of standardized treatments moving forward.
“All medical conditions – diabetes, cardiovascular disease or cancer – are becoming more and more standardized in the way they’re treated,” Dr. Szatmari said. “There’s no reason why we can’t do that also when treating adolescent depression.”
We look forward to sharing more in-depth highlights from the Cundill Conference. In the meantime, you can view presenters’ slides from the event below:
