Psychiatry & Behavioral Neurosciences Department

Message from the Department Chair

We aim to integrate mental health and physical healthcare. This focus informs everything we do from our research, to our training initiatives, to our clinical programs. Mental health is an essential component of health. We're committed to seeing that patients get the compassionate and effective care that we would want for ourselves and for our families.
