“My very first PsychedUp program was in Vancouver on February 23, 2018.
15 months later,
15 programs have been implemented across Canada,
1075 health care professionals attended PsychedUp.
THANK YOU! I am truly grateful for your support and confidence in me.
“I developed PsychedUp CME to make psychiatry continuing medical education clinically relevant, practical, engaging and interactive. Our patients are counting on us to be at the leading edge when we diagnose a mental illness and prescribe or switch psychotropic medications. You'll be there with PsychedUp CME.
I specifically designed PsychedUp CME for front-line Canadian health care professionals: family physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, nurse practitioners and pharmacists”. Diane McIntosh
PsychedUp CME events were designed to deepen healthcare professionals' understanding on how to better diagnose mental illnesses and prescribe or switch psychotropic medications.
Topics include depression, bipolar disorders, anxiety disorders, adult ADHD, epigenetics, role of cannabis in psychiatry, binge eating disorder, and metabolic disorders and obesity management in psychiatry.
PsychedUp CME events are accredited: 4.5 Mainpro+ and Section 1 credits and are hosted in attractive comfortable venues with breakfast, lunch and refreshments included. They run from 9am-2pm

Dr. Diane McIntosh has recently written a much needed book ‘THIS IS DEPRESSION’
This is not a ‘medical education manual’ but a comprehensive and compassionate guide for those who wish to understand depression.
Depression affects everyone.
Mental illnesses are serious, sometimes deadly, isolating, frightening medical disorders that affect the brain and the body.
Every person, at some time in their life, will have a mental illness or love someone who has a mental illness.
Mental illnesses impact our ability to learn and work and play and love. They also cause and worsen physical illnesses, like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.
Stigma regarding mental illness is still a powerful force, provoking shame, promoting isolation, and causing many to avoid seeking help.
