The world of mental health treatment is evolving as more information is discovered about its multifaceted pathophysiology. This poster takes a glimpse at one of these factors: the role of neuroinflammation in mood disorders. Above normal levels of inflammation are found in patient’s suffering from depression and bipolar disorder. Elevated inflammation has significant negative effects on the brain that as a result cause dysregulation in mood. Mental health treatments that have been found to effectively address neuroinflammation include nutritional and exercise interventions. The progression of neuroinflammation research in mood disorders gives a positive outlook for patient outcomes as individuals continue to seek evidence-based treatments that are effective for their unique symptomology.
