To improve the lives of all persons affected by mood and anxiety disorders.
We are a specialized, multi-disciplinary, patient-centered, mental health-care team, focused on bettering the lives of individuals with mood and anxiety disorders through evidence-based clinical care, research, advocacy and education.
Our values are represented in a conceptual framework of a four-point compass. Patient- centered care is our supreme guiding value. It is the center of our compass model, and our ultimate benchmark. The four points of our compass represent the strategic directions that serve our central value of patient-centeredness. They are: Clinical care, Research, Advocacy and Education. Our values framework is a constant reminder that our four strategic directions do not work in isolation. Rather they intersect and are inter-dependent.
