International Symposium - October 21 and 22, 2010


Ten experts in the fields of anxiety and depressive disorders from Harvard Medical School, the University of California, the University of Ottawa, and McGill University will share the latest knowledge about:

  • Recent evidence on the biological link between stress, anxiety, and depressive disorders
  • New developments in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders
  • The treatment of depression during pregnancy and postpartum depression

Depression and anxiety are treatable medical illnesses that currently affect almost 3.4 million Canadians. It is estimated that annually 12% of women and 7% of men suffer from anxiety and depression, yet more than two-thirds of people do not seek appropriate help and treatment for these conditions.
