Department of Psychiatry

The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Utah is proud to be an integral part of Huntsman Mental Health Institute (formerly University Neuropsychiatric Institute) and University of Utah Health. Every day we dedicate ourselves to academic excellence, relevant collaborative research, and compassionate behavioral and mental health care.

We are teachers, researchers, and clinicians. We train future psychiatrists, explore new ideas, map genomes, develop innovative therapies, create new drugs, study spectacular brain images, and pioneer new treatments all with the goal of advancing mental health care to give our patients healthier minds and better lives.
