The University of Michigan constructed the nation’s first multi-disciplinary depression center, founded in November of 2001. Dedicated to research, education, and treatment of both depression and bipolar illnesses, the University of Michigan Comprehensive Depression Center provides a unified approach to diagnosing, understanding and treating depression. The mission of the University of Michigan Comprehensive Depression Center is to “detect depression and bipolar disorders earlier, treat more effectively, prevent recurrences and progression, counteract stigma, and improve public policy.” The center offers community outreach education and training, provides a more hands-on clinical approach for patients, and administers treatment in a multi-disciplinary approach. The center is also routinely involved in a multitude of research projects with the goal of formulating new treatment modalities, studying prevention and minimizing recurrences of mood disorders.
