For Referring Physicians

The Mount Sinai Department of Behavioral Health offers a comprehensive range of mental health services. Our treatment programs—inpatient, partial inpatient, transitional, outpatient, and emergency services—provide a compassionate multidisciplinary approach to evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of all types of mental health disorders. Delivered by a highly skilled team of psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers, the care we provide your patients is reinforced by our research and clinical trials conducted through the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

When we treat the patients you refer to us, we keep you informed about their progress. As a practice, we often recommend that patients continue to see their physicians ꟷ you ꟷ for ongoing medication prescriptions and health care to help sustain their recovery within the community.
