Dear Friends,

Thank you for participating in UCLA's Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors virtual Open Mind/#WOW program. We were pleased to host this zoom event featuring Sandra Tsing Loh and Susan Y. Bookheimer, Ph.D. We hope that you found their conversation engaging and enjoyable.

Our next virtual Open Mind/#WOW program, Modern Madness: An Owner's Manual by Terri Cheney, will be held on Thursday, November 12 at 5 PM PT. In Modern Madness, Terri Cheney flips mental illness inside out, exposing the visceral story of the struggles, stigma, relationship dilemmas, treatments, and recovery techniques she and others have encountered. Ms. Cheney will be joined in discussion by Michael Gitlin, M.D., world-renowned psychopharmacologist, expert on Bipolar Disorder, and Founder and Director of the Mood Disorders Program at UCLA You can register for this event here.
