In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

The Power of a Network | NNDC

The Power of a Network

The National Network of Depression Centers is a non-profit system of 20 leading clinical and academic Centers of Excellence in the U.S., working to transform the field of depressive illnesses and related mood disorders. Only the large-scale, nationwide efforts of a coordinated network can make our vision a reality. The NNDC provides the platform for bringing the best minds together, regardless of their location, to achieve these broad objectives:

  • Standardization of protocols for screening, diagnosis, and treatment, including establishing evidence-based practices for self-management of the symptoms of these diseases
  • Large-scale research to move our understanding forward, encompassing basic or laboratory research, clinical studies, and translational research to rapidly move findings from the research lab to the clinical setting.
  • Improved access to care for all populations through a “hub and spoke” system, anchored by Centers of Excellence at major academic medical centers that disseminate evidence-based information and expertise to practitioners in local communities, eventually realizing the vision of a future free of the burden of depressive illnesses.
  • Education and outreach on a national level to mobilize policy, advocate for public and private support, and supplant stigma with understanding.
