The Asher Center for the Study and Treatment of Depressive Disorders' primary mission is to offer a program of cutting-edge research and clinical services that contribute to breakthroughs in the scientific understanding of depressive disorders. Through our intellectual environment that stimulates and encourages innovation and creativity, we look to continually advance methods of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the conditions we research.
The Asher Center is committed to:
- Developing novel assessment and diagnostic strategies, as well as pharmacologic and nondrug treatments for women of childbearing age and the broader population of patients with mood disorders
- Rapidly translating promising basic science observations into clinical testing and development
- Translating scientific advances into practice and policy from local to global audiences through publications, training and mentorship, service development and provision of leadership and collaboration in women’s mental health and mood disorders
- Recruiting, supporting and retaining a highly-skilled, diverse and multi-disciplinary professional staff that remains at the leading edge of women's mental health and mood disorders research through continued education, training and encouragement of creativity.
