Our clinic is staffed by University of Wisconsin faculty psychiatrists and psychologists with a broad range of experience in general psychiatry and expertise in treating depression, anxiety and family dysfunction. Additional staff includes Master's degree level therapists. The clinic serves as a primary training site for advanced psychiatric residents and psychology interns. A specialized triage unit responds to and screens all requests for service, both urgent and routine.
Available therapies include psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and groups, and psycho biological assessment & treatment. There is also a substance abuse treatment program, and a program which explores the psychiatric causes of sleep disorders.
