The Ludmer Centre would not be possible without people like you.

Measured against checklists of physical symptoms, diagnosing and classifying mental disorders –from schizophrenia to attention deficit– remains subjective. There are no blood or saliva tests to confirm a depression or bi-polar diagnosis nor tell us which child is at risk of developing a mental illness, let alone which treatment they will respond to … not yet anyway!
