UW Health's psychiatry and psychology services emphasize prevention and wellness, including both physiological and psychological health. Our psychiatric staff provides a full range of services for children and adults through patient consultation, outpatient care and programs and inpatient care.
The variety of therapies available includes psychotherapeutic approaches for individuals, couples and groups and comprehensive psychobiological assessment and treatment. We also offer a substance abuse treatment program and frequently explore the psychiatric causes and ramifications of sleep disorders.
UW Hospital and Clinics has an 18-bed inpatient unit for treatment of mental/emotional disorders that cannot safely be treated on an outpatient basis. Services include assessment, interdisciplinary treatment planning, medication management, individual and group therapy, and electroconvulsive therapy to restore patients to emotional stability and return them home. Comprehensive discharge planning refers patients for further treatment in their local communities.
