The Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center is directed by Constantine G. Lyketsos, M.D, M.H.S. and is a central component of the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. In addition to treatment programs to serve the community and extensive research programs, we have educated medical students and residents at Johns Hopkins Bayview since it opened in 1965. Our faculty hold full-time appointments in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Clinical services at Johns Hopkins Bayview include treatment for chronic mental illness, substance use disorders, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, sleep disorders, and behavioral medicine — the interface between psychiatry and other areas of medicine (e.g., burns, cardiovascular disease, chronic pain). Our inpatient and outpatient programs treat adults, children, and adolescents in all these areas.
For outpatient information and appointments, call 410-550-0104
We are also home to leading research in substance abuse, memory disorders, mood disorders (member of the National Network of Depression Centers), schizophrenia, mind-body interaction, sleep disorders, and behavioral biology. In addition, two divisions of the National Institutes of Health are located on the Bayview campus: the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. These programs are integrated into teaching and research at the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus.
Each year we train interns and residents of the Johns Hopkins Psychiatry Residency, as well as medical students and post-doctoral fellows in several subspecialty areas, in both clinical and research programs.Learn more about contacting us. If you are unsure about where to start, call 410-550-0064
