Common Challenges in the Treatment of Mood Disorders and Schizophrenia

Mood disorders and schizophrenia are complex conditions. They are challenging to diagnose even for experienced health care professionals. Delays in diagnosis and treatment lead to poor outcomes for patients as they suffer from effects on mental and physical health.

We are proud to offer free, CME-CE-certified education to aid mental health and primary care clinicians with these challenges. Our faculty developed a series of activities to help you effectively assess and treat patients for bipolar depression, schizophrenia and related conditions such as fatigue and non-adherence.

We invite you to participate in any of these free activities below.

Program Overview

The Massachusetts General Hospital Colloquium: Common Challenges in the Treatment of Mood Disorders and Schizophrenia is a free interactive, live and web-based program covering common challenges in the care of patients with depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Topics include identification of prodromal signs of these disorders, effective treatment strategies including promotion of treatment- adherence, identification and treatment of common residual symptoms, and prevention of adverse medication effects such as antipsychotic-induced metabolic abnormalities and antidepressant-induced fatigue.


Online Interactive Learning Modules (ILMs)


Bipolar Depression Update

This CME/CE-certified activity focuses on treatment strategies for depressive symptoms in bipolar disorder, and helps mental health and primary care teams understand the risks and benefits of various treatment approaches.

Effective diagnosis and treatment of bipolar disorder is critical to optimizing patient outcomes, as the duration of untreated illness is directly associated with greater symptom severity, poorer response to medication, and even suicide risk early in the course of the disorder.
