Date:3/19/2008

Free Event is Open to the Public, Providing Access to Psychiatric Experts Specializing in Trauma, Genetics, Mood Disorders and Childhood Illnesses

WASHINGTON, March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mental health professionals and residents of the Greater Washington, D.C., area will have an opportunity on Sunday, March 30th, to learn more about the growing crisis of PTSD in the military and about other serious mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and childhood disorders, in an all-day, free public forum presented by NARSAD, the world's leading charity dedicated to mental health research.

The forum, which will feature talks by some of the country's leading experts on these issues, is NARSAD's fifth annual Washington, D.C., "Mission Possible" Mental Health Research Symposium. It will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium, located at 730 21st Street, N.W. (On the Metro, orange line to Foggy Bottom). While the symposium is free and open to the public, reservations are recommended and can be made by sending an e-mail to events@narsad.org, or by calling 703-535-1577.

Mental illness disables the lives of nearly 60 million Americans each year, making it the leading disability for people aged 15-44. It affects our families, friends, neighbors, co-workers and businesses. NARSAD presents free symposia around the country to make mental health experts and the latest developments in research more accessible to the public.

The March 30th symposium in Washington, D.C., will kick off with a session on "PTSD in our Armed Forces," where attendees will receive a comprehensive briefing from some of the most prominent experts on the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which now affects more than 7 million adult Americans, and traumatic brain injury (TBI), their causes and symptoms, and new treatment developments.
