ADAA is a wonderful organization dedicated to the improvement of treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. I have had the privilege of being a part of ADAA for many years and having the honor to serve as president is a highlight of my career. The collegiality of practitioners and scientists dedicated to the improvement of patient care for these devastating disorders combined with the adherence to evidence-based research and treatment makes ADAA a wonderful environment for clinicians and investigators. I look forward to hearing from ADAA members with their thoughts about how to make our beloved organization even better.
