The ongoing work of the Depression Clinical and Research Program has, in many cases, defined Depression treatments for the field. Over the years a large group of experienced researchers as well as promising young trainees and junior faculty have gathered, generating countless clinical reports, pilot studies, and large controlled trials. The staff at the DCRP have successfully obtained significant funding from both the National Institute of Mental Health and industry sources. Currently, there are more than 20 ongoing studies at the DCRP.
