In honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month this May, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is hosting a special Facebook Live event on May 1st, 2024, from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. ET. This virtual event will delve into the realm of brain stimulation therapies, featuring NIMH expert Dr. Sarah H. Lisanby, M.D., Director of the Noninvasive Neuromodulation Unit in the Experimental Therapeutics and Pathophysiology Branch and Director of the NIMH Division of Translational Research.

Brain stimulation therapies offer hope for individuals struggling with certain mental disorders that have proven resistant to other treatment modalities. During the event, Dr. Lisanby will elucidate common types of brain stimulation therapies, their applications, and dispel any misconceptions surrounding them. Moreover, she will spotlight NIMH-supported research initiatives in this domain, offering insights into the latest advancements and discoveries.

One of the remarkable features of this event is its accessibility – no registration is required, and the event is free for all. You can tune in directly to NIMH’s Facebook page to watch the live stream. While a Facebook account is not mandatory for viewing, it will be necessary if you wish to pose questions during the event.

For those unable to attend the live session, fret not – the event will be archived on both NIMH’s website and Facebook page for later viewing. Additionally, to ensure inclusivity, sign language interpreters will be provided during the live broadcast.

This Facebook Live event promises to be an informative and engaging opportunity to learn more about brain stimulation therapies and their role in mental health treatment. Join us on May 1st as we delve into this vital area of research and innovation.
