The Pediatric Mood Disorder Program’s two hubs are The Pediatric Mood Disorders Clinic and The Brain Research and Intervention (BRAIN) Center.

Our clinical mission is to help a child and heal a family with utmost compassion. The research mission is to discover the brain mechanisms underlying affective and cognitive disorders and develop state of the art interventions to stabilize emotion dysregulation and optimize cognitive function. We are particularly interested in unlocking the dynamic mechanisms of brain function and constructing integrative whole brain models of how functional and structural networks inform brain function in wellness and illness.

Our clinical and research groups are linked across University of Illinois at Chicago in the Psychiatry, Psychology, Pediatrics, Pharmacy, Neurology, Radiology, and Neuroscience Divisions.



The Brain Center and the clinic is a part of the Pediatric Mood Disorders Program, The Colbeth Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic, the Institute for Juvenile Research, and the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
