I attended my first ADAA conference in 1992 while doing my postdoctoral training with Murray Stein and John Walker. They suggested that I would enjoy the learning opportunities and collaborative atmosphere of the meeting and organization. They were right. I have been a member at involved with ADAA in several capacities since that first conference attendance. My ADAA membership has a number of perks but, for me, the annual conference is the highlight. I am proud to say that I have attended the conference very year now for 28 years. The excellent research and clinical content, combined with a very welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all attendees, is second to none.

More than 41% of college students stated they felt so depressed that it was “difficult to function” in the past year, according to the 2018 study from the American College Health Association.
