Welcome from the chair
Welcome to Ohio State's Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Health. We strive for academic preeminence and best-in-class, comprehensive mental health care. We are transforming our Department towards greater research impact to complement our outstanding clinical services. We are dedicated to excellence, always and in all ways. What do we mean by excellence? We believe that excellence can be measured in the impact we make across our missions. Do our patients suffer less, recover faster and are we saving lives? Do our discoveries in the lab help explain disease, lead to new discoveries and create new and better treatments? Are our students and trainees upon graduation better equipped, more empathic and more curious than when they started?
Our website is continuously updating, and I hope that you will explore, and come back, to learn more about our the work and passions of faculty, trainees and staff, and our many initiatives that are making an impact in the laboratory, in the classroom, in the clinic and in the community.
