Ask the Doctor

Two more days until our 14th Annual Education Conference! The most challenging part of the conference is choosing which of the six afternoon workshops to attend. With the theme Young Adults and Mental Illness: Voice for Hope, each of the workshops will address a different issue affecting young adults, known as the Millennial Generation.

We've already reviewed the five other workshops: The Most Astounding Fact: A Writing Workshop for Recovery, Eating Disorders and Young Adults, Treatment in the Millennial Age, How Young Adults Can Afford the Affordable Care Act and Exploring Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation. Today we are highlighting our tried and true and always popular workshop Ask the Doctor.

Ask the Doctor
People often have many questions that can't be quickly answered in a short doctor's appointment. Do you have questions about: Medications and their side effects? The symptoms of different mental illnesses? Issues related to co-occurring disorders? How to make better lifestyle choices? During this workshop, Dr. Haskett will answer participants' wide variety of questions while discussing effective treatments and supports that promote recovery and healthier living.
Presenter: Roger Haskett, MD, is a Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Director of ECT Program at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic.
