Depression room at University of Pennsylvania: ‘This is really exciting’
A psychiatrist at the University of Pittsburgh says the new Depression Room at the university will offer a safe, comfortable space for people suffering from depression.
The psychiatrist, David Mazzacchino, is also a professor of psychiatry and director of the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
He said he is excited to see the room will help people who have been hospitalized and have not been treated with medications for depression.
Mazzacchi says he is very excited that the new room will be able to offer people with severe depression the chance to have a space to feel comfortable and feel safe.
He told ABC News, “There is an important place for people to come together.
There are a lot of people who need that space.
People who have gone through a lot.”
The psychiatrist says the depression room will provide a safe place for patients to share their stories and discuss their needs.
He said it will also provide a place to discuss other issues that may be affecting the person with depression.
In addition to the room, there will be a small office for patients.
Mazza said the room is not designed to replace any kind of care for depression or for the individual person, but to provide a “safe space for the community.”
He said that although it’s a small room, it is a safe space for a group of people.
The university has agreed to donate the rooms for the new facility.
