Mount Sinai has recently begun a research study of an investigational drug for Major Depression Disorder.

Even with the numerous treatment options, Major Depression remains a debilitating illness. Two-thirds of patients who are initially prescribed antidepressants don't experience a timely response to their treatment.

You may be eligible to participate if you:

● Are 18 to 65 years old
● Experience symptoms of depression
● Are still bothered by symptoms of depression despite taking an antidepressant
● Have discontinued taking an antidepressant due to its ineffectiveness

Please visit-

to fill out our questionnaire, and for more information regarding our Major Depression Disorder Research Study.

The Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program (MAP) in the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine is devoted to understanding the causes of mood and anxiety disorders and aims to advance new treatments to improve the quality of life for patients who are affected by them. MAP at Mount Sinai uses state-of-the-art brain imaging, genetic, and clinical trials methods to enhance our understanding of brain processes associated with these disorders.

Dr. Iosifescu has received a series of prestigious prizes: the NARSAD Young Investigator Award (which he received twice), the Kaplen Award and the Livingston Award from Harvard Medical School, the APA Young Investigator Award, the NCDEU New Investigator Award, and a National Institute for Mental Health K23 Career Development Award. Dr. Iosifescu was also designated among the "Top Doctors in Boston" by Boston Magazine (2006 and 2008) and among the "Best Doctors in America" in all editions of "Best Doctors" since 2005.

Compensation may be available.

Thank you so much.
