Bryan Balvaneda, BS
"I was introduced to ADAA upon entering graduate school through the suggestion of my advisor, Sarah Hayes-Skelton. She described ADAA as having a more intimate, connected community of professionals and pre-professionals, and that the conference often provided more opportunities for integrating research into clinical practice. These two factors sounded like a great fit for my career goals, and I have felt that ADAA would be a great professional home for me since my first conference in 2015.
“As an ADAA member, I've enjoyed the intimate network of community members that allows me to easily connect to others and become aware of opportunities. Often, ADAA members and leadership have presented me with opportunities to become involved with ADAA initiatives that align with my interests and career goals, without me even needing to reach out!”

Taking Action: Stories from our Public Community
ADAA regularly shares stories of how our public community is Taking Action to break the stigma of mental illness.
Recently, Amaranthia Sepia shared her story in “My Experience as a Black Artist with Racial Trauma":
“Discarded” and “Subjugated” are part of a series called "Surviving in Isolation: The Black Mental Health Experience." These pieces are featured in Atac160 x ARTivism Initiative’s activism art show “Postcard Project”. Both are about the feeling of isolation and abandonment many black people with mental illness struggle with… When reaching out for treatment we’re met with apathy due to our trauma being connected to the topic of racism. As a young black woman with racial trauma, I have dealt with blatant racism in mental health care firsthand. My family and relatives have experienced the same.

The Conversation via CNN
One of the hallmarks of obsessive-compulsive disorder is contamination fears and excessive hand-washing. Now, these same behaviors are accepted and even encouraged to keep everyone healthy.
This new normal in the face of a deadly pandemic has permeated our culture and will continue to influence it. Many stores now prominently post rules mandating face masks and hand sanitizer use and limit the number of customers allowed inside at one time. Walkers and joggers politely cross the street to avoid proximity to each other.
Only a few months ago, this type of behavior would have been considered excessive and certainly not healthy.
So, where do doctors draw the line between vigilance to avoid being infected with the coronavirus and obsessive-compulsive disorder that can be harmful?
News at IU Bloomington
Early results from a study by two Indiana University Bloomington professors on the COVID-19 pandemic's impact show a substantial number of mental health issues and instances of psychological aggression within relationships while people have had to shelter at home.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pychiatry Advisor is speaking with healthcare professionals from diverse backgrounds and specialties to learn more about their response to the current crisis. We recently interviewed Jack Turban, MD, a resident physician in psychiatry at The Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where he researches the mental health of transgender youth.

More pregnant women and new mothers are experiencing anxiety and depression during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to survey results published in Frontiers in Global Women’s Health.
Researchers surveyed 520 pregnant women and 380 women who had given birth in the last year. The participants — primarily from Canada — were recruited on social media from April 14 through May 8.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, frontline nurses face enormous mental health challenges. Epidemiological data on the mental health statuses of frontline nurses are still limited. The aim of this study was to examine mental health (burnout, anxiety, depression, and fear) and their associated factors among frontline nurses who were caring for COVID-19 patients in Wuhan, China.
Sacramento State News
Stress, anxiety and depression are common among college students, studies show. Students of color may be affected at higher rates and less likely to seek help.
Sacramento State aims to improve the mental health of students of color in a campaign that organizers hope ultimately leads to higher graduation rates among Black, Latinx and Asian-Pacific Islander scholars.
UC Davis via Medical Xpress
UC Davis MIND Institute researchers found an unexpected set of mental illnesses in patients with a spectrum of a rare genetic disorder. Their study revealed the need for clinicians to consider the complexities of co-existing conditions in patients with both psychological and fragile X associated disorders.
HealthDay News via U.S. News & World Report
More and more U.S. states are allowing marijuana to be taken as medicine, and a new study suggests that users do indeed feel better. In a survey of nearly 1,300 people with chronic health conditions, researchers found that those using "medicinal cannabis" reported less pain, better sleep and reduced anxiety.
They also tended to use fewer prescription medications and were less likely to have been to the hospital recently.

As a significant proportion of patients experience electroconvulsive therapy‐related anxiety, researchers sought to determine the course of ECT‐related anxiety during ECT. Assessment of 74 patients with unipolar or bipolar depression, referred for ECT, was done.
