Task Groups

In order to generate the forward momentum needed to make a difference in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of depressive illnesses, the NNDC has created a platform for unprecedented scientific collaboration.  Here, the best minds in the field - representing the top institutions and cutting across a broad range of medical, social science, and management disciplines - come together to address the most pressing mental health challenges.  

The groundbreaking work of the NNDC takes place within our task groups – multidisciplinary teams made up of leading clinicians and researchers from our member institutions who devote their time and expertise to one or more initiatives related to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of depressive illnesses.
