Caring for the whole patient is at the heart of our mission. The doctors and therapists at the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences treat adults, adolescents and children through community psychiatric services, consultation clinics, inpatient units and day hospitals in more than a dozen specialty areas.
The Future of Medicine Precision Medicine Centers of Excellence in Psychiatry
Our Precision Medicine Centers are aimed at bringing clinicians and researchers together to study how best to get the right treatments to the right patients at the right times. Disease categories are heterogenous, and the Centers aim to break out more homogenous subtypes of illness. The hope is that these illness subtypes will be differentially responsive to various available treatments. Or perhaps a given subtype will suggest a new treatment development opportunity.
Education and Research
The depth of our clinical expertise and the breadth of our research programs allow us to train the next generation of psychiatrists and scientists to be clinical and research leaders.
Knowledge to Cure & Prevent
Our clinical research programs range from efficacy and treatment-response studies to clinical trials and epidemiology.
