Division of Public Psychiatry

Mission

The Division serves as home for investigators and practitioners, both within the Medical School and across the university, who are committed to conducting innovative research in the expanding field of public psychiatry. Public psychiatry, the practice of psychiatry in the public sector, exists at the crossroads of medicine and society, a complex interface in which every aspect of life—environment, community safety, income levels, the basic rights of citizenship, and more—combine to influence the mental and physical health of every person. The Division seeks to foster collaborations in research and evaluation that will lead to better outcomes for people with mental health and addictions problems who are served by publicly funded agencies, maximizing the benefit to patients and to the public at large.
