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 translating cutting-edge scientific research into more effective depression care throughout the lifespan

Treatment – by providing first-class patient care in partnership with the U-M Department of Psychiatry and Michigan Medicine

Education and Outreach – by delivering reliable depression-related information, tools, and support to professionals, patients and their families, the general public, and special communities.

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.
