Psychiatry hosts annual symposium

COMMUNITY COLLABORATIONS: The second annual symposium on Public Sector and Community Psychiatry took place April 30 under the Bulfinch Tent. The event celebrates the depth and breadth of clinical training research and activities in the Division of Public and Community Psychiatry at the MGH. It brings together psychiatry trainees, faculty, community collaborators, and state mental health leaders to promote their shared interests and commitment to this field. Speakers addressed federal homelessness policies and their intersection with mental health, evidence-based treatment of schizophrenia and the opioid epidemic in New England. The talks were followed by a poster session featuring the work of more than 25 faculty and trainees.
