Geriatric Psychiatry Services
VCU Medical Center
Who We Are
The Department of Psychiatry offers a full continuum of programs and services to meet the mental health needs of Richmond residents and the referral needs of clinicians from around the Commonwealth of Virginia and the surrounding region. These programs and services are unsurpassed in their application of the latest research and clinical knowledge.
There is an inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry Services treatment team led by a faculty psychiatrist who specializes in the research and treatment of a specific area of mental illness. This focused knowledge-base makes the inpatient service uniquely suited to treat the primary care patient as well as those who have experienced a relapse or treatment failure in other mental health settings.
The Geriatric Psychiatry Clinic offers in-depth assessments of elderly patients with a special emphasis on memory disorders.
