Researchers at the University of Michigan are working hard to unlock answers and improve treatment options for mental health conditions, but they can't do it alone. Participants play a vital role in finding better ways to treat depression and other conditions by taking part in research studies. With knowledge gained from research studies, treatment for mental health conditions will continue to improve.

Join us as the U-M Depression Center and Department of Psychiatry present this Bright Nights Community Forum. Dr. Patricia Deldin, professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the U-M and Associate Director of the U-M Depression Center, will present a brief overview describing the process of mental health research, highlighting why participation in research studies is critical for advancing knowledge and developing new treatments. This will be followed by a panel discussion with faculty members from the Depression Center and Department of Psychiatry, as well as community members involved with research.

Bright Nights is open to the public and there is no charge for attendance. For more information on the Depression Center, visit their website at, or contact Trish Meyer, 763-7495, or
