Cook County Mental Health Services
Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry at the Cook County Health and Hospitals System. Though modest in terms of staffing, our department engages providers throughout the health system in hospital, primary care, psychiatric specialty, school-based, and correctional settings.
With broad divisions for Adult Outpatient Psychiatry, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, HIV/AIDS Psychiatry, Correctional Psychiatry, Hospital Consultation and Substance Abuse services, Emergency Psychiatric Services, and Community based services, we provide excellent care to the growing populations in need in Cook County.
Identifying the strengths of our faculty and the needs in our community, we have specialized treatment areas for HIV/AIDS Psychiatry, Women’s Health, Adult and Child ADHD, Developmental Child Assessments and Therapy, Neuropsychological Testing, Biofeedback/Pain Management, and Substance Use Assessments. In 2011, the Substance Use Screening and Assessment Service (SBIRT) was recognized for its comprehensive and caring approach of addiction by the United States’ Office of National Drug Control Policy.
The Department has excelled in clinical and service research with funding from federal agencies including HRSA, CDC, NIDA, Adolescent Trials Network, NIMH, SAMHSA, NIAAA, and the Department of Justice. Through this additional work and services, we are able to provide novel and more comprehensive care to a greater number of patients in need.
