Brownlowe_ImageRTFIntegrating mind-body health with a personalized wellness plan

The Center for Psychiatry and Behavioral Health is a key component of the Neurological Institute within The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. We subscribe to an integrated mind-body approach to health, which is reflected in our comprehensive program of treatment services across the continuum of care for all mental and behavioral health conditions, as well as in our research and educational endeavors. In addition to delivering the highest quality clinical care and advancing knowledge in the field, we are committed to educating and training the next generation of clinicians and scientists.

Our faculty and staff include regional and national leaders in the study and care of adolescents and adults with anxiety, depressive and bipolar disorders, early onset psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia, alcohol and substance abuse problems, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Other areas of focused attention and expertise include stress and trauma-induced disorders, suicide prevention, women’s behavioral health, including mental and behavioral issues related to female cancers and childbirth, and the use of neurotherapeutic interventions such as transcranial magnetic stimulation to treat refractory depression and other difficult to manage mental disorders. The Center for Psychiatry and Behavioral Health provides services across all levels of care at Ohio State Harding Hospital, Talbot Addiction Hospital, and Ohio State outpatient sites. 

Our clinical and academic efforts are supported and improved by the expertise of clinicians and scientists at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and in other sections of The Ohio State University and Wexner Medical Center such as the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research and Nisonger Center.
