Now in its fourth year with 35 residents, the Pine Rest Psychiatry Residency Program has helped to reduce wait times for adult psychiatry by over 50 percent. Last summer, Pine Rest launched a Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship that will help address the shortage of psychiatry for children and teens. Our Fellows are Emily Frederiksen, M.D., and Katie Kist, D.O.
Pine Rest participates in research on depression, schizophrenia, dementia, bipolar disorder, bioethics, epidemiology, inflammation, smoking cessation, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and platelet function, and have worked on projects involving pharmacogenomics, electroconvulsive therapy, new depression screening tools and psychotropic medications, biomarkers of depression, and the impact of forgiveness and spirituality on treatment outcomes.
Some of our recent research collaborations have included partnerships with Duke University, Fuller Theological Seminary, Mayo Clinic, McLean Hospital (Harvard Medical School Affiliate), Michigan State University, National Institutes of Health, University of Chicago, University of Michigan, University of Pittsburg, Van Andel Research Institute and Washington University Saint Louis.
First Depression Summit with MSU
On November 13-14, 2017, Pine Rest and the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine (MSU) hosted their first Depression Summit in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to draw attention to the problem of depression and stimulate research. Together with MSU, Pine Rest is an associate member of the National Network of Depression Centers.
Your gift really does make a difference by making access to quality mental health care a reality for those with financial hardships.
