Welcome to the UCSF Depression Center
A Growing National Network
Starting in 2007, the UCSF Depression Center began collaborating with 14 other top-ranked academic medical centers to form the National Network of Depression Centers. This network is aimed at improving research in depression, fostering multisite collaborations, decreasing the stigma of depression, and developing best practices for clinical management of this challenging disorder. The network is also aimed at mimicking the success of comprehensive cancer centers which led to dramatic improvements in bringing state-of-the-art treatment expertise to broad regional areas. The ultimate goal is to have every US citizen be within 200 miles of a National Network Depression Center, so that easy access to expert treatment and consultation will be available nationwide.
The UCSF Depression Center offers state of the art treatment for depression. We strive to provide the best care for persons with depression in a center that holds the highest standards in research, education, and clinical treatment. As a founding member of the National Network of Depression Centers, we promote the advancement of depression treatment and research at a global level so that individuals with mood disorder can benefit.
