Background

Sarah C. Collica, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Alexander Wilson Schweizer Fellow in Mood Disorders at Johns Hopkins. Originally from Palermo, Italy, she received her B.S. from Yale 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. 

As the Alexander Wilson Schweizer Fellow in Mood disorders she has had the opportunity to work alongside Dr. Karen Swartz and other senior faculty at Johns Hopkins to become a clinical expert in the diagnosis and treatment of complex cases of major depression and bipolar disorders, as well as set the foundation for her research interests in the treatment of patients with mood disorders. Her research is focused on two primary areas: measuring sleep among mood disorder inpatients and establishing a registry of mood inpatients hospitalized on the Johns Hopkins Hospital Mood Disorders (MDU) Specialty Units. The goal of the registry is to measure short- and long-term outcomes of the MDU inpatients to collect data that will lead to the systematic study of and improvements in the way we deliver care on the inpatient units.

Additionally, Dr. Collica is integrally involved in providing mental health resources for youth. She works with Dr. Swartz to develop, maintain, and grow the nationwide Adolescent Depression Awareness Program (ADAP) - a depression literacy program for high school-aged students. One of her goals is to introduce and teach this highly successful program in Italy to the youth of her own hometown. She is also part of the team developing ADAP Junior High, the Anxiety and Depression Awareness Program for middle schoolers.
