Early identification of risk for major mood and psychotic disorders in youth


This inaugural guest seminar in the Perspectives in Youth Mental Health Speaker series will be preceded by introductory remarks from the Director of the Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health, Dr. Lena Palaniyappan, and special felicitations of Dr. Ashok Malla, an authority in the field of Youth Mental Health.


Major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and psychosis typically have an onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and continue affecting an individual’s life for decades. Effective prevention of these disorders may depend on how well and how early we can identify individuals at risk. In this talk, Dr. Uher will explore how accurately and how long before onset we can predict who will develop one of these disorders. He will examine family history, molecular genetic information, and early manifestations of psychopathology as potential early indicators of risk in a cohort of children and youth.
