Program Description: 

The Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Centers (MIRECC) at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx is an international leader in research and treatment of Severe Mental Illness (SMI).

The topics for this series consist of innovative treatments that we have created/tested and insights that  have helped to develop that inform clinical care (treatment resistant depression, Veteran attrition from care, medication for SMI, impact of immune disorders upon SMI, relationship between marijuana use and SMI, and the neural circuitry underlying emotion dysregulation associated with Veteran suicidal behavior).
