Catching up with ADAA's Past Career Development Leadership Program (CDLP) Awardees
Meet CDLP 2017 Awardee Ashley Clausen, MA
"As a CDLP recipient in 2017, I had the fortunate opportunity to be mentored by Darin Dougherty, MD. I participated in the CDLP during my final year of graduate training in clinical psychology at the University of Tulsa. I gained an enormous amount of knowledge as a result of my involvement related to grantsmanship, as well as feedback on my line of research, including specific guidance on developing a project to be submitted for a training grant. An invaluable aspect of the CDLP was the opportunity to network with experts, research and clinically focused, across numerous fields, including those within my own field of research." Read more.

ADAA's Clinical Fellows Program
Meet Clinical Fellow Lynne S. Gots, PhD
"The Clinical Fellows program has given me a compelling incentive to attend the ADAA annual conferences in order to earn the required CEUs and stay current in the field. I've always enjoyed the workshops and the added bonus of meeting up with colleagues I've come to know from my regular attendance over the years but now I make it an absolute priority." Read more.
Meet Clinical Fellow Nina Rifkind, LCSW, ACS
"Becoming an ADAA Clinical Fellow was one of the best decisions I've made since going full time with my private practice. Prior to then, many of my CEU decisions, were based on scheduling and proximity to home. I knew I was missing the type of learning I craved: research-based, practical clinical techniques and strategies that would continue to make me a better clinician, but wasn't sure where to find these things."

Research on chronic illnesses and depression indicates that depression rates are high among patients with chronic conditions. In fact, depression is approximately two to three times more common in patients with a chronic physical health problem than in otherwise healthy people. The effectiveness of antidepressants in patients with chronic health conditions has been a topic of debate, and many patients have found that antidepressants do not work.
The Missouri Department of Mental Health reports that more than 80 percent of the 97,000 young Missourians who needed treatment for serious mental health problems in 2015 did not receive public mental health support. Many educators, counselors and social workers are working to improve practices to identify children who need help through risk assessments such as mental health screenings.
More than 300 million people worldwide are affected by major depressive disorder, according to the World Health Organization. Unfortunately, the antidepressants commonly used to treat them only work for 50 percent of the population. A recent paper published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry explores how a protein named CK2 could be playing a key role.

"Have you been to see your doctor?" the woman asked her 72-year-old mother anxiously. Her mother had come from Miami to visit her in New York. They hadn't seen each other for a couple of months, and her daughter hardly recognized her. Her mother had been slender; now, she looked emaciated. Her usually bright eyes peered dully above her newly prominent cheekbones.
Screening elderly patients for depression may be justified when they are set to undergo aortic valve replacement, according to newly released data. Regardless of whether patients underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or the corresponding surgical procedure (SAVR), the presence of symptoms of depression was related to a higher risk of all-cause mortality
Analysis of speech may help predict which at-risk youths will develop psychosis within two years, researchers suggest in a new study. In the research of two independent groups, the method was about 80 percent accurate in determining whether youths whose speech was tangential, or going off track, led to psychosis, according to a study published Monday in the journal World Psychiatry.

A new study finds that among recently returned veterans, those who are married or living with a partner are at higher suicide risk than soldiers who are single. Moreover, older married female veterans are at the greatest risk. Researchers at the University of Connecticut and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs discovered that for some veterans, the transition back to a domestic home environment is an overwhelmingly stressful event.
When children learn they have a long-term illness, such as diabetes or epilepsy, they're likely to suffer emotionally, too, a small study finds. These mental health issues surface soon after the diagnosis, the Canadian researchers said. Surveying 50 kids with a chronic illness and their parents, the study authors found anxiety disorders were most common.
Apathy and depressive symptoms are independently associated with incident dementia in community-dwelling older people, according to a study published in Neurology. The research team assessed whether apathy and depressive symptoms are independently associated with incident dementia during a six-year follow-up in a prospective observational population-based cohort study.

Patients with head and neck cancer who show symptoms of depression are at a greater risk of mortality, according to research published in Cancer. Among patients with cancer, those with head and neck cancer have among the highest rates of depression. Depression is, furthermore, linked to an up to 39 percent greater risk of mortality among all patients with cancer.
A California mother's claim that she was escorted to a hospital by police after speaking to a nurse practitioner about postpartum depression has sparked a conversation among women. Jessica Porten, of Sacramento, wrote about her experience in a recent Facebook post that has been shared more than 30,000 times.

Rhoda Meek wries: Many years ago, I had to take some time off work for depression. I had a sick note from the doctor, and had disclosed that it was mental health–related. After two weeks, when I was just starting to feel like I could cope again, my colleagues invited me out for the evening. I wanted to remain welded to my sofa, but I decided to go as a way of easing myself back into my routine.
