Workshop on ADHD for Psychiatrists, May 2022

Mental Health Foundation, Kolkata organised and conducted a 2 Day evening workshop on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) for Psychiatrists on 12th and 19 May, 2022 at Taj Vivanta, Kolkata. ADHD is the commonest childhood behavioural disorder. All mental health professionals working with young people are conversant about the condition, which can and does pose some real challenges for clinicians. For Psychiatrists, additional expertise is required for pharmacological management (drug treatment) of ADHD.

The 2 day workshop was an intense learning experience for more than 40 Psychiatrists who attended the program. The faculty included Dr Satyajit Ash, Dr Sujit Sarkhel and Dr Jai Ranjan Ram, Consultant Psychiatrists and Mrs Lipica Bhattacharya, Special Educator.

After the feedback we received, we have decided to make this workshop an annual event. Here are some pictures from the program.
