Early detection of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are critical to optimizing outcomes for patients. Yet these conditions present many diagnostic and clinical challenges for mental health professionals.
We developed these free sessions to help mental health professionals address these important issues. They focus on early detection, treatment and management of bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia. The sessions were recorded during a one-day conference in Boston in January 2015. All are led by senior faculty from the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Psychiatry.
- Assessment strategies for bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia
- Risk factors for metabolic abnormalities
- Interventions for metabolic problems
- Effective pharmacologic treatments for fatigue and cognitive dysfunction in depression
This activity is part of a free series. All the activities help you effectively assess and treat bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia, and related conditions such as fatigue and cognitive dysfunction.

In accord with the disclosure policy of McLean Hospital as well as guidelines set forth by the Accreditation Council on Continuing Medical Education, all people in control of educational content, including speakers, course directors, planners, and reviewers, have been asked to disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests of both themselves and their spouses/partners over the past 12 months, as defined below:
The ACCME defines a "commercial interest" as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services, used on, or consumed by, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests. For more information, visit www.accme.org.
Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.
Relevant financial relationships
ACCME focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CME activity. ACCME has not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME defines "'relevant' financial relationships" as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.
Conflict of Interest
Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
The following planners, speakers, and content reviewers, on behalf of themselves and their spouse or partner, have reported financial relationships with an entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services (relevant to the content of this activity) consumed by, or used on, patients:
