Welcome to the UIC Department of Psychiatry!

Since its early beginnings in the 1890s, our Department has an esteemed history of providing outstanding service in meeting the mental health needs of the people of Chicago, the State of Illinois, and beyond. From the beginning, clinical services have been enhanced by a strong tradition of excellence in psychiatric research that includes basic neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience, health services, and interventions.
