Edit Profile


Dr. Mai Uchida is a staff child and adolescent psychiatrist in the Clinical and Research Program in Pediatric Psychopharmacology and Adult ADHD, and the Lorraine and Alan Bressler Clinical and Research Program for Autism Spectrum Disorders at MGH. She is also an instructor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

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 career focus has been on the characteristics, longitudinal course and treatment of unipolar and bipolar pediatric depression. She is the recipient of the Dupont Warren Fellowship and Livingston Award which supports her study that uses resting state fMRI to investigate potential biomarkers of the risk for pediatric mood disorders.

Dr. Uchida is also the recipient of the Elaine Schlosser Lewis Award from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to investigate the utilization of text messages in improving management of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. This project has the potential to impact a broad range of children who suffer not only with ADHD, but also with other chronic psychiatric disorders.

Dr. Uchida continues to collaborate with her international colleagues and has authored book chapters on mental health in the Asian population.

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, and her views on the neurobiology behind adolescent suicides were published in the Boston Globe.
