Psychiatry Department

The Department of Psychiatry supports the mental wellbeing of patients as they work toward full recovery and lasting health. As part of our dedication to healing, the department collaborates in many clinical trials and research endeavors, and is home to leaders in behavioral medicine and addiction psychiatry.

Facing down addiction is a journey you don’t have to make alone. Our compassionate and dedicated team is here to help.

The stress of coping with an illness or surgery can affect your overall wellbeing. We provide expert consultations and services throughout the medical center.
