Brain injury & Severe and Persistent Mental illness

Thomas Hall, MA, CBIST

Assistant Vice President for Clinical Services,

Developmental and Cognitive Services Division, Riverside Community Care

This presentation will focus on the potential intersection of neurological and psychiatric symptoms in the evaluation of mental illness. Disorders related to neuro-pathology at times can mimic psychiatric symptoms, and when taken into consideration can inform a broader range of therapeutic approaches both pharmacological and therapy-based. The presentation will include an overview of brain-behavior relationships, brain function and development as well as specific epileptic and frontal lobe disorders. Attendees will also be provided guidance related to assessment to rule in/out brain disease as a contributing factor in a person’s mental health presentation.

Certificate of attendance will be given so you are able to submit for CEUs
