Our Mission

Patient Care

The University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry offers inpatient and outpatient clinical services. Our mission is to provide exemplary patient-centered and evidence-based treatment while promoting dignity and respect in a safe and healing environment. We strive to make a difference in the lives of our patients and help them improve their functioning at work, in school, at home, and in their relationships with family and other important people in their lives. Respect for patients, continuity of care, and strong communication between all parties involved in patient care define our approach.
