Mental illness takes a personal, familial and financial toll that is unequaled by any other contemporary problem in the United States. To assist people experiencing mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia, the Detroit Medical Center offers a broad range of treatment options in a setting that fosters high quality education, training and services.
The Neuropsychiatric Research Unit (NRU) at Wayne State University and the Detroit Medical Center conducts research that will hopefully lead to major breakthroughs in the underlying causes and treatment of schizophrenia and mood disorders. Psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists and social workers form a dynamic team approach to treatment. New medications, treatment methods and increased understanding of the human brain at Detroit Medical Center facilities will improve the prognosis for all people afflicted with mental illness.
