Department of Psychiatry

We're Here to Help

The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is dedicated to training providers of the highest caliber and to providing top-quality mental health services to all who need it, no matter what their age, race or economic status. We offer a wide range of clinical services, including psychiatric treatment for children, adults and geriatric patients; behavioral health services such as Employee Assistance programs; and treatment for drug and alcohol addictions. This assistance is available on both an inpatient and outpatient basis at various facilities throughout the Baltimore area. See our various divisions. 

The Department of Psychiatry's externally funded research portfolio currently exceeds $15 million and is growing rapidly. The department includes several research programs that together represent one of the most comprehensive programs of research on psychotic disorders in the world.
