The National Network of Depression Centers- India Foundation (NNDC-IF) is a non-profit organization, in the US and India, that focuses first and foremost on increasing mental health education in order to eradicate the stigma of depression and mood disorders. NNDC-IF intends to improve the lives of those affected by creating scientific awareness amongst healthcare professionals and the general society through their Behavioral Health Training Program (BHTP).
NNDC-IF was inspired by and modeled on its American counterpart, NNDC. Established in 2008, NNDC is a non-profit consortium of 25 leading clinical and academic institutes in the United States which aims to establish research centers through partnership programs, advance scientific research, and provide stigma-free care. Similar to NNDC, NNDC-IF is a forerunner for academic and institutional authorities on mental health.
Ultimately, NNDC-IF’s mission is to use the power of its worldwide network to act as a unified platform to bring collaborative and innovative mental health awareness and education to the US and India.
