I volunteer my time and serve as director for the DBSA for many reasons. The three most important reasons to me are that I have seen the powerful therapeutic of advocacy on patients and family that have been affected by mood disorders. Secondly, I am forever grateful for the surreal privilege that patients and families have given me; not only an incredible purpose but also a tremendous inspiration. Thirdly, I really believe that the DBSA plays a critical role in representing the voice of those effected at the level of policy, education, research, as well as in the development of new treatments for mood disorders.

Roger is currently a Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology at the University of Toronto and Head of the Mood Disorders Psychopharmacology Unit at the University Health Network, Toronto, Canada.
