Location: Virtual Event (via Zoom)
Depression is one of the most common psychiatric disorders. Its high prevalence amongst Canadians has an adverse impact, affecting the well being and productivity of individuals, families and caregivers. And it has only continued to rise during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
The management of depression is challenging for mental-health-care workers. Many psychiatric interventions have been used in the treatment of depression, from psychotherapy, to psychopharmacology and brain stimulation techniques.
Hosted by the Poul Hansen Family Centre for Depression, part of UHN’s Centre for Mental Health, the “Clinical Advances in Depression Care” interactive, one-day educational event will offer an overview of interventions and treatments for depression care and new approaches under study.
Presenters — including UHN’s Psychiatrist-in-Chief Susan Abbey, psychiatrists Daphne Voineskos and Joshua Rosenblat, psychotherapists Jenna McLeod and Sariné Willis'O'Connor, as well as occupational therapist Blakie Sahay — will describe recent advances in depression care including both biological (rTMS, ketamine, novel antidepressants) and psychotherapeutic (MBCT, CFT interventions) treatments, detail Health Quality Ontario Standards for Major Depression care and provide an overview of interventions and models of care used in providing care to individuals with mental and physical health concerns, among other topics.
