The Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, McGovern Medical School

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston is dedicated to the missions of education, research and patient care.

Through education, we train the students, residents and fellows of today to become the mental health care leaders of tomorrow – whether in public or private sectors, in solo or group practice, as researchers, educators or clinicians. In research, our faculty and staff are at the forefront of the exploration of the causes of and treatments for mental illness. Great strides have been made in recent years through research – some at our institution. We have research centers that study mood disorders and addictions, as well as labs devoted to molecular psychiatry and behavioral sciences research.

In patient care, we provide innovative approaches to the treatment of patients in public and private hospitals as well as ambulatory care settings. Our skills and technology are balanced with compassion and respect for the patients we serve. Over the past several years, we have expanded our services to include a number of community clinics and hospitals, with providers of both inpatient and outpatient services. Additionally, our faculty staffs the 250-bed inpatient hospital associated with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, UTHealth Harris County Psychiatric Center.
