We are nationally and internationally recognized in each of these domains and have a passion for innovation, cutting-edge discovery, training the next generation of leaders in psychiatry and advocating for policy that improves the lives of the patients we serve. This is a transformative time for Psychiatry and Behavioral Health and we are extremely well poised to respond to the significant mental health needs facing our society. We are intentionally fostering diversity, equity and inclusive excellence through our actions, our policies and our culture. Whether you are looking for information about patient care, education and training, groundbreaking research, community engagement, or our new initiatives focused on mental health equity, I welcome your interest in our exceptional department.
