Norman and Ida Stone Institute of Psychiatry

The Norman and Ida Stone Institute of Psychiatry's inpatient unit opened in the heart of the medical campus in September of 2011. It provides a contemporary approach to psychiatric care in the hospital setting. A healing environment, evidence-based psychotherapy, expert pharmacology and neuromodulation support our goal to accelerate recovery and prepare our patients to transition back into the community. We are the first inpatient psychiatric care unit in the country to incorporate behavioral activation into the care setting.

Through the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, translational and clinical research into the neurobiology of mental disorders is ongoing and these programs aim to improve our understanding of the underlying causes of disorders and to influence the development of new treatments.
