Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
The inpatient program at Montefiore Medical Center focuses on patients who require complex psychiatric evaluations to treat and stabilize their symptoms. Our 22-bed unit treats patients who have a variety of disorders including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and others. Patients are treated in an intimate setting to ensure individualized attention. We provide an environment in which our patients can discuss their mental health issues openly, and we are committed to respecting their privacy.
Inpatient treatments may include: psychopharmacological interventions and management, crisis-oriented family and group therapy, augmentation, phototherapy, and Electro-Convulsive Therapy (ECT) for treating depression that has resisted other therapies.
Patients older than 14 and who are experiencing psychiatric or behavioral problems due to a neurological problem can undergo a complete workup at our neuropsychiatric center. This includes MRI, EEG, CAT scan, and/or other neuropsychological tests to fully assess each his or her patient's condition.
