About Us

The U-M Department of Psychiatry is part of Michigan Medicine, one of the nation's leading health care facilities, and is home to the nation's first comprehensive Depression Center and the Molecular and Behavioral Neurosciences Institute.

We provide patients with state-of-the-art treatment and care of psychiatric disorders, much of it based on the innovative research done by our faculty. Our psychiatric care facility is one of the best in the country, and was one of the very first to provide modern diagnosis and research on mental disorders.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to produce impactful research that substantially reduces the burden of mental illness; improve access to care in the right place, at the right time, at the right level for all patients needing clinical services; and deliver top-notch interprofessional training to all trainees so that they are equipped to meet patient needs as part of teams in the healthcare setting.
