University of Michigan Depression Center


One in six people will experience an episode of depression in their lifetime. Although depression is a common illness, it is often under diagnosed and under treated.

Established in 2001, the University of Michigan Comprehensive Depression Center (UMDC) is the first of its kind devoted entirely to bringing depression into the mainstream of medical research, translational care, education, and public policy. The Center is at the forefront in changing the paradigm of how depression and bipolar illnesses are understood and treated.

Former players who believe they may be dealing with depression are encouraged to reach out to the Professional Athletes Foundation to access special programming through UMDC and affiliated partners.
