Features Emory University
On December 17, 2012, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Emory University formally opened the Shanghai Mental Health Center-Emory University Collaborative Center for Global Mental Health.
The new Collaborative Center, housed on the campus of the Shanghai Mental Health Center, was developed to advance shared research projects among faculty members at the two institutions. Shanghai Mental Health Center, which is one of the largest mental health institutions in China, is responsible for coordinating clinical services for the 22 million residents of Shanghai, and treats an astonishing one million patients per year. Emory University's Woodruff Health Sciences Center is known for its prominence in research related to mental health and the neurosciences.
"This collaboration will help researchers and clinicians in China to keep up-to-date with the exciting, cutting-edge research being conducted at Emory's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences," explains Michael Phillips, who was named the director of the Collaborative Center.
