The UCLA Anxiety and Depression Research Center (ADRC) is located in the Department of Psychology at UCLA in Pritzker Hall. The ADRC is directed by Professor Michelle G. Craske, Ph.D. The purpose of The ADRC is to further our understanding of the factors that place individuals at risk for developing anxiety and depression and to develop more effective treatments that have long lasting effects and are cost effective.
All aspects of assessment, diagnosis and treatment are conducted within the context of research, and in accord with the ethical guidelines established by the UCLA Office for Protection of Research Subjects. Research studies at the ADRC are funded by multiple sources including the UCLA Academic Senate’s Faculty Research Grant funds, the National Institutes of Mental Health, and the Department of Defense. ADRC funding from the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) has been continuous since 1993.
