Biography

Dr. Mai Uchida is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and, Staff Psychiatrist in the Clinical and Research Program in Pediatric Psychopharmacology and Adult ADHD.

Dr. Uchida is a dedicated clinician to both children and adults. She also conducts research to better understand and advance care for various psychiatric disorders.

Her research career focus has been on the characteristics, longitudinal course and treatment of unipolar and bipolar pediatric depression. In collaboration with Drs. John and Susan Gabrieli at MIT, she has published on the fMRI based biomarkers of the risk for development of major depression, and received the First Prize Department of Psychiatry Award of MGH as well as the Dupont Warren Fellowship and Livingston Award for her works on this topic. She has multiple publications on evaluations of screening tools, longitudinal follow ups and systematic reviews on pediatric depression.

Another area of Dr. Uchida's expertise is in adult and pediatric Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). She is also the recipient of the Elaine Schlosser Lewis Award from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to investigate the utilization of health technology in improving management of ADHD.

In addition, Dr. Uchida is a committed advocate for mental health. She has articulated her thoughts in a number of international publications, including the International Herald Tribune and Asahi Shimbun, on topics ranging from suicide prevention and informed consent to the experience of being a Japanese female physician in America. Recently, her views on the emotional difficulties that residents in Fukushima, Japan continue to experience post-earthquake and radiation threat were published on abc.com, and her views on the neurobiology behind adolescent suicides were published in the Boston Globe.
