In recognition of ADHD Awareness Month, NIMH will host a livestream event on October 21, 2020, from 1:00 - 1:30 p.m. ET, to discuss signs, symptoms, treatments, current research, and tips for helping children and adolescents manage ADHD during the pandemic.
Came across this while browsing a provider's website. I did some googling and the results mostly talked about where to get this certification and some providers who have it. Has anyone ever heard of this? Is it legit or just another way to pad the CV?

My scam radar is going off, but I figured I'd ask.
We present data on predictors and mediators of such risk, highlighting a recent dual-process model involving trait impulsivity plus family- and peer-related contributors. We conclude with recommendations for assessment and preventive intervention. PMID: 33019955 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The potential role of several differentially expressed genes, including ABCB5, RGS2, GAK, GIT1 and 3 members of the galactose metabolism pathway (GALE, GALT, GALK1) are substantiated by prior associat...

This study assessed the impact of a recent (within past year) diagnosis of a mental disorder - including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia - on the risk for COVID-19 infection and related mortality and hospitalization rates. We analyzed a nation-wide database of electronic health records of 61 million adult patients from 360 hospitals and 317,000 providers, across 50 states in the US, up to July 29, 2020. Patients with a recent diagnosis of a mental disorder had a significantly increased risk for COVID-19 infection, an effect strongest for depression (adjusted o...
