NYCCAP's Break the Cycle
Sponsored by the NYCCAP Break the Cycle Committee--Angel Caraballo, MD; Molly Gangopadhyay, MD; Annie Li, MD; and Iliyan Ivanov, MD

Children are caught in a cycle of limited access to care, delayed treatment, and worsening illness. Our goal as child & adolescent psychiatrists is to BREAK THE CYCLE by collaborating with mental health professionals and parent advocates, investing in research, helping children get treatment, increasing awareness, and ending the needless sense of isolation.

This summer, Dr. Andrés Martin will cycle from Washington State to Washington, DC, leading a ride to raise awareness of the challenges faced by children and adolescents with mental illness.
 
Andrés Martin, MD, MPH is a child and adolescent psychiatrist and prominent member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) who is leading this cross-country bike ride (route).Andrés Martin, MD, MPH is a child and adolescent psychiatrist and prominent member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) who is leading this cross-country bike ride (route).
