For Patients with Mood Disorders

The Mood Disorders Center at the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute employs the most advanced methods to diagnose and treat adult and adolescent patients from across the Greater Cincinnati region. Our physicians are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of depression, bipolar spectrum disorder, anxiety disorders, cyclothymia and dysthymia. We treat mood disorders induced by alcohol or substance abuse.

Our multidisciplinary team includes psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatric nurses, social workers and pharmacists.

Our nationally recognized program is a member of the National Network of Depression Centers, a network of 16 academic health centers dedicated to advancing research, treatment and public education in the areas of depression and bipolar disorder. The network also seeks to transform the field of mood disorders by making mental health assessments and treatment affordable, accessible and acceptable.

The UC Mood Disorders Center is a collaboration among the UC Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, the Lindner Center of HOPE, and the Children’s Hospital Medical Center Department of Psychiatry. It is also closely affiliated with the Department of Family Medicine at UC and the Mayfield Clinic.

We offer two specialized, private-pay clinics: 1) an Addiction Specialists Treatment and Evaluation Clinic (ASTEC) for people who are struggling with addictions to nicotine, alcohol or drugs; and 2) an Opiate Addiction Recovery Services (OARS) Clinic for people who are addicted to opiates.
