The mission of the Center is to enhance the development and practice of Public Service Psychiatry by providing leadership, collaboration, education, and community-based research.
The Center offers an outstanding fellowship in Public Service Psychiatry. The fellowship is a one-year post-residency opportunity. Two positions are available each year. The Fellowship will enable the fellows to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to assume positions of leadership in diverse systems of care.
The Center will also enhance Public Service Psychiatry education offered to medical students, psychiatry residents, fellows, primary care physicians, and other provider specialties.
The Center will foster partnerships with rural and urban communities throughout the region and will strengthen the quality of services and their responsiveness to the community’s needs. It will emphasize service development based on public health principles, diversity, and inclusiveness. These principles will be evaluated with systematic input from consumers and family members.
The advanced training in leadership, collaboration, and system dynamics will equip fellows to make essential contributions to service administration and behavioral health policy across the nation.
