Mood disorders are among the most common of psychiatric disorders, whether primary or as part of a co morbid presentation.  There has been a long history of evidence based treatments for mood disorders that include psychotherapeutic and pharmacological interventions.  Other interventions that expand the repertoire of clinicians providing treatments have an evidence base but are less well understood or utilized.   Clinical practice needs to be informed by developments in all manner of treatments including light therapy, other somatic treatments and innovative uses of brain imaging to direct treatment choices as we develop the clinics of the future.
