NAMI's Ask the Doctor teleconference is a monthly series hosted by NAMI's Medical Director, Dr. Ken Duckworth. Typically, he is joined by another mental health professional or advocate who in turn presents on a topic in his or her area of expertise. Each month, two such calls are hosted; one focuses on adult issues, the other on child and adolescent issues.
To access these calls, dial 1 (888) 858-6021 and enter pass code 309918#. These calls are always held at 11 a.m. E.T. on scheduled dates unless otherwise noted. The Ask the Doctor schedule and previously recorded podcasts can be found below.
