The New York State Psychiatric Institute offers treatment services through various clinical programs, including inpatient and outpatient treatment. Many of our treatment services are offered through participation in studies, including a large number of clinical trials. Our department has research studies in a wide variety of areas, offering treatment for depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, substance abuse, and other conditions. Adults, children/adolescents, and the elderly are served through these programs. Our clinical programs are supported by services including clinical psychology, nursing, recreational and occupational therapy, and social work. We also have a Patient and Family Education Center that offers education and information about psychiatric disorders and treatments.
