The University of Michigan Adult Inpatient Psychiatry Program at U-M Hospital provides diagnostic evaluations and comprehensive, individualized treatment for patients with serious psychiatric illnesses. We realize that patients may come to our unit for care under difficult circumstances, and we are dedicated to working together to facilitate a healthy and effective process of healing.
"Our mission is to provide exemplary patient-centered and evidence-based treatment while promoting dignity and respect in a safe and healing environment. We strive to make a difference in the lives of our patients and help them improve their functioning at work, in school, at home, and in their relationships with family and other important people in their lives."
- David Im, M.D., Medical Director for the Adult Psychiatry Unit (9C)
Respect for patients, continuity of care, and strong communication between all parties involved in patient care define our approach. Healthcare professionals from a broad range of clinical backgrounds dedicate their unique skills and expertise to treating patients during critical periods of need for psychiatric care.
Our approach to treatment planning involves working together with patients to develop recommendations for every aspect of treatment during their stay in our facility, including individual and group psychotherapy, psychosocial activities, and medications. Treatment plans also include recommendations for patients to continue to manage illness after they are discharged from the hospital.
