Focusing on early identification, prevention, sustained recovery and proven clinical treatment.
At the UNC Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health, we work with individuals with serious mental illness and their families to provide evidence-based treatment and support meaningful and productive lives.
We focus on early identification and prevention, sustained recovery, and proven clinical treatment. Care is provided by multidisciplinary teams, including UNC psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, rehabilitation counselors, nurses and other mental health professionals. We emphasize the integration of psychiatric and medical care.
We also provide multidisciplinary training for the next generation of mental health professionals, as well as training and technical assistance for providers throughout North Carolina.
