The Session Wrap-Up will be a new, reoccurring feature that gets all of that information into the hands of you, our readers. So be sure to swing by every Monday to get the scoop on all the mental health and health care news that's fit to print from around the U.S. and the world. We'll give you the run down on the week that was with as many useful links as one can stuff into a blog post.
