Presenter Info:

Karen L. Swartz, M.D., is founder and director of the Adolescent Depression Awareness Program (ADAP), a school-based program designed to educate high school students, faculty, and parents about adolescent depression. Now in its eighteenth year, the ADAP curriculum has been taught to over 66,000 high school students. Dr. Swartz and the ADAP team have also developed a comprehensive training program that prepares high school counselors and teachers as ADAP instructors, which facilitates the dissemination of the program. In addition to the Baltimore-Washington area, the program has been taught in multiple states including Oklahoma, Illinois, Indiana, Delaware, Ohio, Florida, Texas and Minnesota.


She received her B.A. from Princeton University and her M.D. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She completed her psychiatry residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she served as chief resident. She then completed clinical fellowship training in affective disorders and research training in psychiatric epidemiology at The Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health. She is the Director of Clinical and Educational Programs at the Johns Hopkins Mood Disorders Center. Dr. Swartz is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Her clinical expertise is in the diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders.  

Dr. Swartz received the national 2007 Welcome Back Award, which honors one psychiatrist annually, in recognition of her leadership in destigmatizing depression through community education. In 2008 she was selected as the one psychiatrist in Maryland honored with the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill’s “Heroes in the Fight Award” for both efforts to destigmatize mental illness and clinical excellence. In 2009 Dr. Swartz was inducted as a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.
