Facebook Live: Brain Stimulation Therapies

Date and Time

May 1, 2024
3:00–3:30 p.m. ET




In recognition of National Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is hosting a Facebook Live event on brain stimulation therapies. The event features NIMH expert Sarah H. Lisanby, M.D., Director of the Noninvasive Neuromodulation Unit in the Experimental Therapeutics and Pathophysiology Branch and Director of the NIMH Division of Translational Research.

Brain stimulation therapies can help people with certain mental disorders who have not responded to other treatments. During the event, Dr. Lisanby will describe common types of brain stimulation therapies, and why they are used, dispel misconceptions, and highlight NIMH-supported research in this area.


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