Did you know... Many people don't tell their doctors what alternative therapies they're using, but it is important to do so. Some herbs can cause serious side effects when mixed with prescription and over-the-counter drugs such as aspirin, blood thinners or blood pressure medications. Older adults may metabolize medications differently so safe doses may not be established.

About Us

The Fuqua Center for Late-Life Depression was established in 1999 following a gift from the J. B. Fuqua Foundation to develop a Center of Excellence in the treatment of late-life depression. As a part of the Wesley Woods Center on Aging and Emory University, The Fuqua Center is dedicated to:

  • Improving older adults' access to treatment of depression
  • Improving public awareness and understanding of depression in older adults in order to de-stigmatize and eliminate discrimination associated with mental illness

The Fuqua Center and Emory University’s Department of Geriatric Psychiatry provide a comprehensive continuum of geriatric psychiatry services to its patients. Services include outpatient and inpatient psychiatric care, preventative care, chronic disease management, peer support, psychotherapy, and community-based clinics that provide comprehensive geriatric psychiatric evaluations and medication management.
