On May 3, as part of National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day, NIMH is sponsoring a videocast panel of children's mental health researchers. This panel is a great chance to hear directly from experts working in the field. You can learn the state of the science in children's mental health and ask top NIH scientists about topics ranging from normal brain development to anxiety, bipolar disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Our expert panel features researchers from the NIMH Division of Intramural Research Programs, including:
- Ellen Leibenluft, senior investigator and chief, Section on Bipolar Spectrum Disorders, Emotion and Development Branch
- Daniel Pine, chief, Section on Development and Affective Neuroscience and Emotion and Development Branch, Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program

The session will be moderated by Thomas R. Insel, director of NIMH.
