The Neuropsychiatry Center at University Hospitals provides specialized care for anyone with a neurological condition who is also having behavioral or psychological difficulties.
It is quite common for neurological patients to have problems related to their disease, or to their surgical and medical treatments. For example, someone with Parkinson’s disease or a brain tumor may have depression; a person who has suffered a stroke may have dementia, or perhaps a medication-related complication.
When these problems are addressed by an experienced neuropsychiatrist, studies show that patients’ functioning improves and there is a reduction in the rates of complications and death.
The nationally recognized experts within the Neuro-Psychiatry Center address these issues of co-occurring disorders by providing the highest quality care to both adults and children.
Any patient receiving care at any of the Centers within the Neurological Institute is able to take advantage of the professional help available.
Evaluation and Diagnosis for Children
Many childhood disorders require expert evaluation to distinguish whether symptoms are due to a neurological or psychiatric problem. The Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry is nationally recognized for its clinical and research accomplishments, and represents the largest group of child and adolescent psychiatrists in northeast Ohio, and one of the largest in the country.
