The Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic: The Next 100 Years
BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE no longer means bricks and mortar. Today the investment is in our scientists, teachers, and clinicians to provide them with the time and tools to do their best work. We are:
Building on our strengths to accelerate the translation of basic science discoveries into rational treatments in the areas of our expertise: anxiety and mood disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders, traumatic brain injury, movement disorders, Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
Leveraging our experience in the area of substance abuse to bring our proven models of care, based on decades of treatment, research and professional training, to a wider audience.
Renewing our prominence in the area of child and adolescent psychiatry with new leadership, strategy, and investment. Founded here by Leo Kanner, academic child psychiatry stands at a critical juncture with scientific advances but limited resources.
Seeking to advance the prevention and treatment of the most common and costly medical conditions such as obesity, addictions, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease by drawing on our expertise in behavioral science. Tackling medicine’s biggest challenge – changing behavior to prevent illness - is a multidisciplinary effort in which we have a vital role.
How you can help
Supporting our talented and committed scientists, teachers, and clinicians often takes the form of endowed professorships, fellowships, and lectureships. Here are two current projects inspired by the 100th anniversary of the Henry Phipps Clinic and the top-ranking of the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences:
The Adolf Meyer Professorship in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
The J. Raymond DePaulo, Jr., M.D. Leadership Fund
