Department of Psychiatry


Our large, leading team of neuropsychiatrists has expertise across the full range of brain-mind disorders. It provides evaluation and treatment for emotional, behavioral, cognitive and perceptual difficulties in the presence of neurologic illness, whether it has already been diagnosed or is an underlying possible cause. The neuropsychiatric aspects of epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury and immune conditions are among the areas of sub-specialized focus. Our Center for Brain/Mind Medicine brings together specialists in neuropsychiatry with those in behavioral neurology, geriatric psychiatry, neuropsychology, social work and occupational therapy to care for patients in an individualized fashion.

In addition, the Department of Psychiatry is an integral part of the Neurosciences Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where physicians, residents, researchers, specialized nurses, and support staff across the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry collaborate to offer innovative, compassionate, and patient-centered care and to pioneer groundbreaking advances in treatment of neurological diseases.


For over a century, a leader in patient care, medical education and research, with expertise in virtually every specialty of medicine and surgery.
