The Mood Disorders Program is a patient-centered program, designed to meet each individual patient’s needs.  With a balanced approach of medication and psychotherapy, our expertly-trained team of clinical physicians is dedicated to ensuring that each patient has a wide range of treatment options.  Treatments and other services are offered in a variety of locations, including inpatient and outpatient settings.  With an emphasis on peer collaboration, clinical research, and continuing education, the Mood Disorders Program strives to provide effective and compassionate care that enables our patients to live healthier, fuller lives.

The Mood Disorders Program is committed to providing expert care to adult patients and their families, while conducting research to advance scientific knowledge.  We are dedicated to improving clinical outcomes of under-served patients with mood disorders, particularly those presenting with rapid cycling bipolar disorder, co-occurring anxiety and substance misuse/abuse, legal complications, and members of the Ohio Guard and Reserve.  The research we do in the Mood Disorders Program focuses not only on symptom improvement, but also on function and disability with an objective to ultimately improve patient quality of life.

Why We Do What We Do

“We like what we do. We see it as a privilege to do what we do. We study mood disorders. We study bipolar disorder. We study how mood disorders present early in life and how they can be best treated. We believe that there are no miracle pills and that talking with people and helping them learn how to live with the symptoms of their illness makes a big difference. We try and come up with new ideas that make a difference. We think the patient is always right, even when they are wrong. We are here to make a contribution, to improve the lives of people and their families who suffer from and live with mood disorders.”  Joseph R. Calabrese, M.D.

Our Mission

To identify the causes of Bipolar Disorder and other mood disorders, to find effective treatment, and to discover a cure.

Our research is patient-centered. This means we have designed our research studies to improve the lives of people who choose to participate in them. Our research focuses on function and disability, not just symptom improvement.
