The University of Florida’s Mood Disorders Program, spearheaded by the department of psychiatry at UF’s College of Medicine, was recently named a center of excellence by the National Network of Depression Centers, or NNDC. UF Health is the first academic health center in Florida to earn this distinction.

“We are thrilled to welcome UF Health as our newest center of excellence,” said NNDC executive director Pat Rinvelt. “Their interdisciplinary approach to research and patient care has built strong ties not only in other departments at the university, but across the Gainesville community and beyond as well. It is an approach that strongly resonates with the founding principles of the NNDC.”
