General Psychiatry Inpatient Unit

Johns Hopkins Hospital - Broadway Campus

Director: Larry Alessi, M.D.

The Meyer 5 General Psychiatry Service provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary, acute, short-term assessment and treatment of the full spectrum of psychiatric disorders, with and without comorbid substance abuse problems. The service specializes in a community mental health approach and works closely with numerous mental health and social service agencies, substance abuse programs, and private care providers to meet the medical and social support needs of patients returning to the community. The treatment team is comprised of an Attending Psychiatrist who is part of The Johns Hopkins University faculty, a resident psychiatrist, and psychiatric social workers, nurses and occupational therapists. The entire treatment team works closely with families, care providers and outpatient programs involved in the patients longitudinal care. Patients may step down from inpatient acute treatment to a partial hospitalization program if the treatment team feels it is appropriate.
