Inside This Issue

2016 was an exciting year for the Departments of Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Over the past year, we’ve recruited an array of outstanding faculty in autism, schizophrenia, anxiety and mood disorders, eating disorders, military trauma, and women’s reproductive psychiatry. Our researchers published landmark studies on Alzheimer’s disease, infant–caregiver attachment, and on a novel medication that produced prolonged reductions in anxiety and depression symptoms in cancer patients. These advancements allow us to provide innovative models for practitioners across the globe, ensuring that people of all ages and backgrounds have access to excellent, evidence-based, and compassionate mental healthcare.
