Mood disorders are serious, debilitating, life-shortening illnesses that affect millions. About one in five Americans could develop a mood disorder during his or her lifetime. The World Health Organization projects that mood disorders will be a leading cause of disability worldwide by 2020. To make treatments work better and find new treatments, we must understand more about what causes mood disorders. Dr. Carlos Zarate will cover the symptoms and treatments for mood disorders and the latest research on what may cause them.

Dr. Zarate completed a Fellowship in Clinical Psychopharmacology at McLean Hospital from 1992-1993, after which he remained as a staff member until 1998.
