Ohio Mood Disorder Registry and Repository

Official Title
Ohio Mood Disorder Registry and Repository

Mood disorders like Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder can be chronic, recurrent illnesses. Our treatments to date can help many people but are often trial and error, and continuity and access to care form major barriers. Our purpose is to create a research registry and repository of individuals with mood disorders who are willing to provide clinical data yearly, and who are willing to be contacted to participate in current and future studies of mood disorders.

Could this study be right for you?
