Treatment-Resistant Mood Disorders Program

Elliot Gershon, M.D.

This program serves as a secondary and tertiary care resource for Treatment Resistant Mood Disorders (TRMD). The program offers a comprehensive evaluation and therapies targeting those who have not responded to more than one preceding trial of antidepressants and/or mood stabilizers. Patients referred for ECT would almost always fit in this category. Therapies include medication management, cognitive behavioral therapy, ECT and recommendations for other therapies not currently available at the UCMC, like transcranial magnetic stimulation or deep brain stimulation.
