Adolescence is a crucial period in the development of lifelong mental health, says Center-affiliated faculty member Ronald Kessler. In his keynote at the annual Harvard Catalyst symposium on brain development in the second decade of life, Kessler discussed how the teenage years can begin a “cascade of triggers and problems” that lasts into adulthood. Kessler is the McNeil Family Professor of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School.
