The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance will feature at its Aug. 29 meeting Dr. Lily Arora, who will conduct a “real life” diagnostic interview on one of its predesignated members using it as an educational tool for the audience.
She won’t know the person beforehand and it will be unrehearsed. She will also discuss all areas of interest to the audience regarding mood disorders.
Arora is board certified in both psychiatry and addiction psychiatry. Her training in psychiatry was at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, followed by a fellowship in Addiction Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine. She trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. She is a clinical assistant professor at Rutgers University, where she teaches and supervises residents in psychiatry. Arora is in solo private practice in Morristown, where she treats all psychiatric disorders in addition to substance and alcohol addiction.
These educational meetings of the organization take place on a Wednesday every month at 7:45 p.m. in Morristown Unitarian Fellowship. The meetings are open to the public.
Free literature is available to all attendees and there is an extensive lending library of educational audiotapes, CDs and videotapes, also free.
