Fondation FondaMental - France

Partner description

The Fondation FondaMental (www.fondation-fondamental.org) was created in 2007 as a “foundation de cooperation scientifique” by the French Ministry of Research. This foundation gathers a nation-wide network of more than 70 research labs and 30 university hospitals to (1) improve diagnosis and prevention of severe psychiatric disorders, (2) galvanize research in psychiatry and (3) improve education and reduce stigma. Fondation FondaMental has created and coordinates a French comprehensive set of 43 Expert Centers, all equipped with dedicated e-medical file for patients with major psychiatric disorders (i.e., bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, treatment-resistant depression, autism spectrum disorder).


Network description

The French network of expert centers for resistant depression consists of 13 specialized care centers hosted within academic departments of Psychiatry widely distributed across France. Seven out them located respectively in Paris/Créteil, Besançon, Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand, Grenoble, Toulouse, and Tours will take active part in the present project. They are composed of, at least, a psychiatrist, a nurse, a neuropsychologist and a secretary. They represent joined clinical and research platforms highly specialized in the comprehensive assessment and management of treatment-resistant depression (TRD). In parallel, they are actively engaged in research projects intending to better identify clinical and biological determinants of TRD. Also, they contribute to the promotion of innovative strategies designed to overcome the treatment failure in major depression.


All team leaders have intensive and recognised knowledge and experience in the evaluation and treatment of resistant forms of major depression.
