I became involved with ADAA at the invitation of a former board member and have come to greatly appreciate it. The organization is mission-driven and strives to be a great resource offering quality helpful information to the public as well as mental health professionals.
ADAA, in my opinion, has been an important part of the effort to disseminate evidence-based treatment of anxiety and depression to more and more settings throughout the nation. We can all take pride in these efforts to improve the quality of case available for all.
As a practicing clinical psychologist, I love the annual conference's clinical focus and high quality. It's been a great resource to so many of us as we try to stay as up-to-date as possible on effective treatments for anxiety and depression.
