The UF Mood Disorders Program was named a center of excellence by the National Network of Depression Centers, one of only 21 in the U.S. and the first in Florida.

“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.”
