CET's mission is to serve patients, consumers, health care providers and workplace managers as it:
Educates the public, students, and professionals about effective use of environmental therapies.
Offers authoritative information on non-medication treatments for seasonal affective disorder, nonseasonal depression, and circadian rhythm sleep disorders.
Fosters research on environmental interventions that promote alertness, energy, and performance — while combating fatigue, stress, depression, and sleep disturbances that affect millions of people.
The Center for Environmental Therapeutics is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1994 in response to accelerating international interest in new environmental therapies. The Center is made up of a multidisciplinary team of eminent researchers and clinicians — experts in mental health, ophthalmology and optical physics, electrical engineering, biochemistry, physiology and gerontology — who are committed to pooling their efforts toward the development and application of effective environmental therapies.
We are now upgrading and expanding our website, so in addition to helping people in Chinese, Russian, French, Italian, Romanian, and so on, we will be having many new features, from quizzes to case histories. If you are a writer, editor, content manager, or curator, we welcome you and your help!
CET's current president is Michael Terman, PhD, a professor in the psychiatry department of Columbia University, and director, Center for Light Treatment and Biological Rhythms, Columbia University Medical Center.
