500 mg of a patented curcumin extract taken twice daily for 8 weeks was associated with a decrease in depressive symptoms when compared with a placebo treatment in participants with major depression (Lopresti AL, et al. 2015).

Working memory and mood have also been found to be significantly better when taking curcumin (Cox KH, et al. 2015).
Regular curcumin is not well absorbed, but there are now several ways to make curcumin easier to absorb. Some forms are better than others.
