The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences consists of an outstanding team of researchers, clinicians, and educators who provide world-class expertise in psychiatric illness, treatment, scholarship, and scientific discovery.
We are dedicated to training the next generation of experts for Minnesota and beyond. We aim to give learners at all levels the tools to be prepared for upcoming science-informed disruptions in how we understand and treat mental illness.
We perform high impact, ethical research that elucidates biological and psychological mechanisms underlying mental illness. We use that understanding to develop highly innovative and personalized prevention and treatment approaches.
We provide innovative and effective inpatient and outpatient clinical care as a base for teaching medical students, residents, and trainees from multiple disciplines. We focus on access to our expert care through our Rapid Access and Brief Treatment programs and enhanced Integrated Care activities.
