We strive to further new, readily useful knowledge in neuroscience, prevention, and social and clinical areas that will benefit people with mental illnesses, their families and communities. We are committed to UIC's urban mission to provide service, education and research that enhances lives. We deliver the highest quality mental health services with sensitivity and respect to the patient and her/his family. We are dedicated to mental health research to ameliorate illness until cure is found and ultimately to prevent illness and disorder. We are dedicated to instilling in our students and trainees cutting-edge knowledge and skills, respect for patients, and the values of a health professional in a just and humane society.
