ECNP Depression Meta Network

We are pleased to announce the newest addition to ECNP Networks programme: the ECNP Depression Meta Network. Because of its heterogeneity and pervasiveness across disorders and research domains, depression had been too ‘big’ for its own Network. This challenge has now been addressed with a new concept: the meta-Network. Drawing upon expertise from across the Networks programme, the Depression Meta-Network significantly enhances ECNP’s commitment to understanding and treating this extraordinarily complex and prevalent disease, currently estimated to affect no less than 6% of the world’s population.
