We support our learners to become talented clinicians who are prepared to serve individuals who have mental health needs with sensitivity, compassion, and rigorous excellence.  

Our programs offer many opportunities to study with knowledgeable faculty members dedicated to excellence in patient care and scholarship. Many of our faculty are recognized as national and international experts in their field. We have special strengths in treatment-resistant depression, stress and trauma, early childhood development, adolescent mood disorders, psychosis spectrum illness (including first episode of psychosis), and addictions.
