Care Provided

Adult Psychiatry
Life can be very stressful.  These problems may be a reaction to a sudden stressor like death or divorce, a more longstanding psychiatric illness such as Bipolar Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Texas Health Science Center has a wide array of programs to help you or your family member cope with these problems.

We offer evaluation and treatment for most common psychiatric disorders, including:

Anxiety/Depression
If nervousness or sadness last much of your day and interfere with your life, this could be more than just the normal “blues”. Our clinicians employ a combined treatment package of medication and psychotherapy to assist you with managing your emotions, thoughts and behaviors.

Bipolar Disorder (Manic-Depressive Disorder)
Bipolar Disorder is a condition that affects over 2 million Americans. Mania symptoms may include feelings of extreme happiness or irritability, increased energy, and a reduced need for sleep while depressive symptoms can include overwhelming feelings of sadness, a lack of energy and changes in appetite and sleep.

The Department of Psychiatry is a National Institute of Mental Health Center for the study of bipolar disorder. New treatments for mania and depression are available through the Center and the Department’s Mood Division.

Dementia and cognitive disorders
Emotional and memory problems in later life can be a great concern to patients and their families. Our Geriatrics division offers a comprehensive assessment for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia; we also treat a wide range of psychiatric problems in the elderly.

Marital, Family and Adjustment Issues
Divorce, illness, job change or loss are but a few of the many stressors that can take a toll on our relationships with spouses and children.  Individuals can find the stress of career or relationships overwhelming.  The Department has experienced psychologists and social workers who can help you work through these issues.

Geriatric Psychiatry
Emotional and memory problems in later life can be a great concern to patients and their families. The Division of Aging and Geriatrics provides outpatient clinical care for elders with dementia, depression, and other mental disorders, and psychiatric problems in the elderly. Comprehensive assessment for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are offered. The teaching clinics are staffed by Jason Schillerstrom, M.D., Ricardo Salazar, M.D., and Donald Royall, M.D. Each elder referral receives brief neuropsychological testing which screens for memory, problem solving, and mood impairments. Medication management and psychotherapy targeting the maintenance of self-care activities and caregiver stress are offered. The division also provides consultation services for local nursing homes and for Adult Protective Services.
