Understanding. Care. Awareness.

Mood disorders are characterized by changes in mood that don't have the usual connection with what is occurring in a person's life. Our center provides a range of specialized services to patients with mood disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder and many others. Our treatment facilities include inpatient units, a day hospital and consultation, and ongoing care clinics.

Science. Awareness. Clinical Care.

More than 20 million Americans suffer from depression or bipolar disorder. The World Health Organization’s most recent global burden of disease study cites depression as the leading cause of disability worldwide. So curing these brain diseases in the best way we think possible—by understanding their genetics and biology and by translating sound clinical research into good care—is our constant goal.
