The department is focused on clinical research. We investigate the symptoms and treatments of various psychiatric illnesses, including Alzheimer’s disease and novel treatment modalities (MBAT - Mindfulness-Based Art Therapy). Our Mood Disorders Program is conducting innovative research on the identification and treatment of the side effects of psychiatric medications. In addition, it conducts clinical trials of potential new medications for mood disorders.
