The Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry provides specialized care to middle-aged and older adults, conducts research on age related mood disorders and trains future research and clinical leaders in geriatric psychiatry. Psychiatric clinical care is available to older adults on an inpatient or outpatient basis, and is also offered to patients living in a nursing home. Research efforts meet patients where they are, with the goal of developing treatments that can be embedded into community services and sustained long-term. Examples include research on ecosystem-focused therapy for post-stroke depression and problem adaptation therapy for depression with mild dementia. The institute also offers research and clinical training in fields related to geriatric psychiatry for medical students, residents, interns, fellows and post-graduate scientists. The Summer Research Institute is a career development program offered to junior scientists and physicians from around the country who are interested in geriatric mental health.
