Improving daily mood
Mood disorders are becoming an alarmingly fast-growing health problem. For instance, more than 100 million people worldwide are suffering from depression. The negative consequences of these disorders are considerable. Mood disorders not only affect the everyday lives of individuals with these disorders but also reduce productivity and participation and, therefore, have a major impact on society.
The ICPE research helps to prevent mood disorders and provide tailored treatment to patients, thus improving their day-to-day mood, productivity, and participation in society.
In addition to transferring the acquired knowledge to practice, it is also shared with fellow scientists and the general public because the ICPE aims to provide all with insight into mood problems and how to deal with these.
