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.
