Discover how mood disorders affect patients and family
When someone is diagnosed with a mood disorder, both the patient and family want to know how what happened, what can we expect in the future and who else in my family is at risk. As a psychiatrist and researcher, MacQueen will use evidence-based research to explain what can be expected.
