  • The Young Adult Behavioral Health Program

    The Young Adult Behavioral Health Program’s mission is to help young adults with mental health issues live more productive lives by providing comprehensive and age-appropriate psychiatric services. 

    Young adults with psychiatric illness face numerous challenges, including navigating multiple programs and delivery systems.  Existing mental health services are not necessarily tailored to patients’ mental disability or age range, which may discourage young adults from receiving the care they need.

    Our program provides psychopharmacologic consultation, long-term psychiatric care, referral and partnership with interpersonal, supportive, dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapists. 

    We work with family members, colleges and universities to provide individually tailored treatment. Our clinicians coordinate with inpatient and partial hospital programs to provide each young adult with a continuum of care that is customized to their needs.

    Our staff has expertise in treating young adults in a variety of areas, including: 

    • Mood Disorders
    • Anxiety Disorders
    • Attention Deficit Disorder
    • Eating Disorders
    • Substance Use Disorders
    • Trauma Related Disorders
    • Psychotic Disorders
    • Impulse Control Disorders
    • Adjustment to Chronic Medical Illness  

    Directors: Laura Whiteley, MD and Larry Brown, MD
