Mood Disorders: Why Choose Vanderbilt
- Advanced care
Our program is part of a world-class academic medical institution. This means our patients have access to Vanderbilt’s wealth of medical health services. We also accept more medically complicated patients than most other services. We have helped patients who have not responded to previous treatments return to normal life settings.

Our patients pursue wellness in groups, learning good problem-solving and goal-setting skills and healthy ways to communicate. Psychoeducation groups help patients manage symptoms through skill building and coping techniques. Activity groups help patients express themselves creatively.
