Mood disorders account for at least two thirds of suicides and a massive degree of disability, pain and suffering. We have a wide range of effective and safe treatments, including psychotherapeutic, pharmacological, nutritional, and brain stimulation methods. Too often, however, the full benefit of these treatment options are not realized in actual practice.

In this presentation, Dr. John Rush will discuss some of these newer treatment options while focusing on practical ways that patients, families, other caregivers and clinicians can help with early detection, treatment implementation, relapse prevention, as well as complete symptomatic and functional recovery.

A. John Rush, M.D., professor emeritus at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School at the National University of Singapore and an adjunct professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Duke University School of Medicine
