Mood Disorders Program - Patients and Visitors
What To Expect
Although each of our clinical research studies is different, they typically have three parts:
- Patients will be interviewed about their medical and psychiatric history.
- Patients will undergo a physical examination and specific laboratory tests including a urine drug test and a urine pregnancy test for women.
Experimental Treatment Session(s)
- Patients will receive experimental treatment at one of our BCM affiliate sites, such as the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center or the Ben Taub NeuroPsychiatric Center. Patients meet with the study psychiatrist and other members of the research team. We will interview patients about their mood and ask them to complete questionnaires.
- Upon completion of the study, we will provide patients with an appropriate referral to a community or BCM psychiatrist.
