What we do

Our work is defined by our common goal: diagnosing, treating, and eventually preventing depression, bipolar disorder, and related illnesses. We approach this goal through a comprehensive strategy that includes:

Discovery– by igniting groundbreaking research programs and collaborations to generate bold ideas and new hypotheses that revolutionize the way we prevent, diagnose and treat depressive illnesses.

Education and Outreach – by delivering evidence-based information, tools, and support to professionals, patients and their families, the general public, and special populations.

Influence– by leveraging our position as an international leader and founding member of the National Network of Depression Centers (NNDC), so we may forever change the way depressive illnesses are perceived and treated on a local, national, and international level.
