We are one of the national leaders in integrating significant advances in genetics, neurobiology, and the behavioral sciences into a more comprehensive understanding of human development and behavior that allows us to provide state-of-the art patient care.
Our multidisciplinary training programs have been preparing mental health clinicians and scholars to address the unique needs of children, adolescents, and their families since the 1960’s. Our clinical programs serve a large and diverse patient population, including a focus on underserved youth. We also work with clinicians throughout the state of Michigan to provide consultations and assessments, using innovative technology to connect with patients and providers in rural areas. Our outstanding faculty and staff have broad and diverse expertise in areas ranging from molecular biology research to innovative community treatments that address risk as early as a child’s first year of life.
