Many children go through periods of moodiness, but children with irritability experience severe symptoms that can lead to significant problems at home and school. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is hosting a Facebook Live event on childhood irritability featuring NIMH expert Melissa Brotman, Ph.D., chief of the Neuroscience and Novel Therapeutics Unit in the Intramural Research Program.

During the event, Dr. Brotman will discuss symptoms of irritability, why it's important to study irritability, NIMH-supported research in this area, and new treatments for severe irritability in youth.

No registration is required for this free event. Watch the live event on NIMH’s Facebook page.
