The Rachel Upjohn Building is a truly unique place. It was designed to serve a specific purpose: to house the U-M Depression Center and Ambulatory Psychiatry, bringing together in one place the people and resources to provide multidisciplinary care for patients and their families, and to foster groundbreaking research into the causes, treatment and prevention of mental health conditions.
Our spacious atrium welcomes visitors and houses the Friends Depression Education Resource Center, centrally located on the first floor near the patient care areas. The second floor of the building is primarily devoted to research and emerging treatment programs.
The building was named for Rachel Mary Upjohn Meader in recognition of a generous gift by the Meader family that made construction of the facility possible.
Of course, we’re much more than an attractive building. We are proud of both the professional and architectural environments we’ve created, and we hope they contribute to your comfort, confidence and sense of wellbeing.
