Prevention, treatment, management and rehabilitation of behavioral and psychiatric conditions are central to comprehensive health care.
The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania provides the highest level of care to patients, conducts innovative research and educates the future leaders in the field.
Psychiatric and behavioral health disorders range from potentially life-threatening disorders, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and severe depression, as well as less debilitating but common conditions, such as anxiety and less severe mood disorders. These conditions take a toll not only on sufferers themselves, but also on families, caregivers and society as a whole.
The Department of Psychiatry and Penn Behavioral Health strive to provide the highest level of clinical care to all patients, create new knowledge and translate these discoveries from bench to bedside, and educate the future generations who will carry on this work.
Penn Behavior Health offers a wide variety of treatments for psychiatric and behavioral disorders.
