How our research benefits to society
By understanding underlying mechanisms of mental disorder, we strive for better knowledge, better treatment, and more effective societal prevention.
We train and tutor a new generation of multidisciplinary researchers from different countries and cultures, and collaborate with patients and caregivers in tailoring research to their needs and questions.
Given the enormous personal and public health impact of mood and anxiety disorders we share our findings not only with fellow researchers, but also with patients, clinicians, and the larger public. Together with societal partners, we are establishing large-scale prevention programs in the north of the Netherlands.
