The Department of Psychiatry offers an array of services for patients with mental illness and emotional disturbances. Adults requiring hospitalization are cared for by staff psychiatrists and direct-care personnel who have extensive experience with both acute and serious, persistent mental illness. The inpatient psychiatry service provides intensive treatment, as well as vigorous occupational therapy and therapeutic recreation.

The Department of Psychiatry has working relationships with the district and juvenile courts and provides services to the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center and Hennepin County Adult Correctional Facility.
