The three core components of the Department of Psychiatry mission are education, research, and consultation. Within these aims we seek to advance knowledge of human behavior and mental illness relevant to the Department of Defense and the nation.

  • We educate the next generation of physicians with a comprehensive understanding of human behavior and mental illness.
  • We advance understanding of human behavior and response to trauma and stress.
  • We apply knowledge gained through research to advise a broad range of national and international stakeholders on best practices to manage psychological responses to trauma and stress.
