WHERE HELP IS NEEDED: Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is dedicated to helping people of all ages overcome the impact of problems related to stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger or depression.

Compassionate, nationally recognized specialists work together to deliver world-class patient care, tailored to meet the specialized needs of each individual. In complex situations and even when past treatment programs have been unsuccessful, patients benefit from the experience, innovation and team philosophy found here.

The Department also is ranked among the nation’s top psychiatry research centers and has played a leading role in the search for treatments of depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, problems with drug and alcohol addiction, and many other disorders.

Funding Priorities

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences has great potential for growth in its educational, research and patient-care programs.  Because the Medical University receives just 6.4 percent of its annual budget through state appropriations, private support will play a key role in our ability to fulfill this potential.  Among our most urgent funding priorities:

  • The MUSC Psychiatry Educational Scholarship Fund
    The Educational Scholarship Fund provides invaluable help to students, trainees, and scholars in the course of their education to become specialty-trained in the broad field of psychiatry. 
  • The MUSC Psychiatry Frontiers of Science Fund
    The Psychiatry Frontiers of Science Fund is designated to support research of adolescent and childhood problems, disorders in the elderly, post traumatic stress disorder and many other emotional and psychiatric problems.
  • The MUSC Psychiatry Endowed Chair Program
    Endowed chairs are perhaps the most important tools we have to bring the world’s top caregivers and researchers here to our campus.
