The DMU Behavioral Health Clinic is now open and offers comprehensive psychiatric services
Our providers can assist with the diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorders, psychosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, ADHD, and other behavioral or mental health disorders. Currently, the DMU Clinic does not offer therapy services, but the providers can assist with referrals when indicated.
The clinic is located on the seventh floor of the DMU Clinic. We accept patients who are 18 years of age or older, and patients do not require a referral. Plan for 60 minutes for the initial appointment, with approximately 30 minutes for follow-up appointments.
What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?
Psychiatrists are medical professionals involved in both the diagnosis and treatment of mental health and behavioral issues. Psychiatrists differ from psychologists or counselors in that they undergo training in medical school, and complete a residency in psychiatry which allows them to prescribe medications for psychiatric illness.
If this is a medical or mental health emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. We do not offer after-hours, or weekend and holiday on-call services. If you have other questions that can wait until the next business day, please leave a voicemail at the clinic and we will get back to you the next business day. If it is more urgent and cannot wait until the next business day, please go to the nearest emergency department, or call 911.
