Second Annual Gala and Convocation Dinner

Register Here

Reservations are available for the 2nd Annual Gala and Convocation of CTMSS Fellows. This incredible gala SOLD OUT last year and is expected to be bigger and better this year in Colorado Springs!

Join us Friday, May 5th, 2023, as we honor the 2023 CTMSS Fellows in the International Building at The Broadmoor for a celebration dinner, and a special presentation from Cindy Elkins - "From Surviving to Thriving: Our story of perseverance." 

Adolescent mental health is at an epidemic level, exacerbated by the pandemic. Chase's diagnosis of severe depression in March 2020, during her sophomore year in high school, led her and her family on a road they thought they would never be on. Cindy, Chase's mom, will share their story of searching for people and/or treatments that would bring Chase hope, relief, and healing. Chase started TMS in January 2022, and Cindy will share how they found TMS and how it changed their lives.

We are excited to announce this year's Clinical TMS Society Fellows award recipients!
