National College Depression Partnership (NCDP)
Supporting Student Learning by Overcoming Depression
NCDP is a college health consortium benchmarking healthcare quality via ongoing measurement of treatment outcomes with well validated depression severity measures emphasizing collaborative learning. Effective collaborative depression care relieves suffering, improves readiness to learn, and promotes student retention and success. In 2013, with funding provided from Dr. Phil Wood, Dean of Students, McMaster became the first Canadian university to join the partnership.
