Dear Friends and Colleagues:
As another pandemic year comes to a close, and in the wake of the recent tragedy at Oxford High School, our work in mental health has never been as important as it is right now. The recent declaration of a national emergency of rising mental health concerns among young people underlines this. This worsening crisis in child and adolescent mental health is inextricably tied to the stress brought on by COVID-19 and the ongoing struggle for racial justice. In this last e-newsletter edition for 2021, read more about what MC3, one of our programs, is doing to help providers treat young patients with behavioral health concerns. We are also highlighting several other news, podcasts, webinars and events that our psychiatry experts are involved in.
From our Michigan Medicine family to yours, wishing you a joyful and warm holiday season,
Gregory Dalack, M.D.
Daniel E. Offutt, III Professor & Chair
