At this year’s AGM, we will dive in and discuss the question Can We Prevent Mental Illness?

This year’s AGM will feature a Panel Discussion with Alisha Griffin, Research Coordinator, Nicole Stinson, TIDE Project Coordinator and Dr. Rudolf Uher, FORBOW Principal Investigator.

Can we prevent mental illness? That is the central question of the FORBOW project, which began in Halifax more than a decade ago but now operates a satellite location in Pictou County with funding from the Aberdeen Health Foundation.

The panel discussion will dig into what we have already learned about mental illness so far and the team’s efforts to develop ways to predict and prevent the onset of serious forms of mental illness in youth.

FORBOW, which stands for Families Overcoming Risks and Building Opportunities for Wellness, is a one of a kind study internationally. Dr. Uher has been the recipient of several awards and was recognized in the 2023 list of world’s most cited researchers.
