Weill Cornell Institute for Geriatric Psychiatry awarded $10 million grant
Date:9/24/2009

ncy of increasing Weill Cornell's research efforts. "The elderly population is growing exponentially. We expect a 73 percent increase in the number of older adults between now and 2020. Predictably, 15 percent will develop clinical depression. We now know that depressed older persons are much more likely to have worse outcomes when they develop coronary artery disease, cancer and stroke and even die from their complications. Depression in younger adults is painful. In late life, depression is also fatal. Therefore, improving the quality of treatment for geriatric depression has direct implications for the overall care of the older person. For this reason, research in geriatric depression is emerging as a national priority."

Along with its original research, the Weill Cornell Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry has a strong record in training new investigators in late-life depression. A large percentage of its research fellows proceeded to receive competitive NIMH Career Development Awards and to make important contributions to the field of late-life depression.

"The good news is that medication, psychotherapy or combinations of both can improve the depression of more than 50 percent of older adults. I expect that this grant will enable us to improve the available treatments and increase the percentage of patients who benefit from them. In collaboration with our community partners at the Westchester Geriatric Mental Health Coalition, I hope that we will improve the recognition and diagnosis of depression in our County and elsewhere in the country and enable community based services to offer state of the art treatment to large numbers of depressed older persons," Dr. Alexopoulos explained.

The coalition comprises the County Department of Mental Health, the County Department of Senior Programs and Services, community-based primary care practices, social services, rehabilitation hospitals, and home healthcare agencies.
