U-M Depression Center receives $750K gift from Eli Lilly Foundation

ANN ARBOR, MI -- A new $750,000 gift to the University of Michigan Depression Center will accelerate new programs to help people with depression get the treatment they need, and sow the seeds for a potential future network of depression centers across the United States.

The unrestricted, three-year gift from the Lilly Foundation is the largest ever given to a U-M program by the foundation, the nonprofit philanthropic arm of Eli Lilly and Company.

"With this gift, we will be better able to reach out to patients and their families in primary care and community settings, find ways to help improve patients' adherence to treatment, and share the U-M Depression Center model with other institutions across the country," says John Greden, M.D., executive director of the U-M Depression Center and Rachel Upjohn Professor and chair of psychiatry at the U-M Medical School. "We're tremendously grateful to the foundation for sharing and supporting our vision of improving depression care for everyone."

"The U-M Depression Center uses a more complete approach to recognizing and treating all the symptoms of depression -- aches and pains as well as the more easily identifiable symptoms of depression such as sadness, insomnia and appetite changes -- providing the best opportunity for people to get better," says Paula Trzepacz, MD, Medical Director of Eli Lilly and Company US Neurosciences.

She continues, "The University of Michigan has taken a bold step in naming their center specifically for a condition which still carries social stigma in the minds of many people. We at Lilly are proud to support the U-M Depression Center, the model program for establishing a national network of state-of-the-art depression centers. Their novel approach enables more doctors to more effectively reach the millions of Americans who suffer from depression each year."

The U-M Depression Center, part of the U-M Health System, was founded in 2001 as the nation's fi
