Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City offers nationally recognized psychiatry and behavioral sciences services. As the only academic medical center in Kansas, the health system offers care for children, adolescents and adults. We treat patients in the areas of addiction psychiatry, health psychology, pain management, general psychiatry, psychological evaluation medical intervention (PEMI), including evaluations and support for bariatric, transgender, transplant, neurostimulator and cancer care.

We are committed to high-quality, effective patient care through a team of board-certified psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric social workers, experienced psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists and other professionals.

Care is offered at various locations in Kansas City, Overland Park and Westwood, Kansas.

For decades, health system leadership has advanced academic medicine through teaching at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. As the second largest residency program in Kansas, it’s estimated that half of all Kansas board-certified, practicing psychiatric providers have benefitted from our nationally recognized teaching program and its physicians, providing leading-edge care to patients every day.

Advancing knowledge about the brain and behavior

As psychiatric specialists, our goal is to improve quality of life for our patients to determine what causes disturbances in behavior and how to best manage them.
