MoodNetwork is the first online patient-powered research network for depression and bipolar disorder (mood disorders). MoodNetwork aims to bring together 50,000 participants who have experienced mood disorders, and their friends and families, to collaborate with researchers and clinicians.
“Depression and bipolar disorder affect millions of people, but the treatments available, while helpful for many, are not good enough,” says Andrew Nierenberg, MD. “We need a new approach both to use the treatments we have more effectively and to develop better treatments. That’s where MoodNetwork comes in.”
