Repositioning the Psychiatric Service Continuum at Emory University Hospital at Wesley Woods

Adult PsychiatryThe National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) projects over the next 25 years, we will witness the largest population increase in people over 60 years old in the history of mankind, in addition to a general population that will reach 400 million by 2030. The need for psychiatric services is also expected to increase during this period. These projections demand a review of how we provide psychiatric services.

As a result of this review, Emory University Hospital at Wesley Woods is proud to announce the launch of our new Adult and Senior Inpatient Psychiatry Programs. Our inpatient care model includes a diagnostic assessment, initial treatment and crisis stabilization to insure our patients safely transition from inpatient care to outpatient therapy. We also offer advanced treatments for psychiatric and mood disorders, including electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), Ketamine Infusions and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) – treatments that all may be continued after patients leave the hospital.

Our outpatient service offerings incorporate the Transitions Senior Program /Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) & Intensive Outpatient Counseling Program (IOCP). We also offer general outpatient psychiatric care office visits. Additionally, we are also pleased to highlight the success of our recently launched 60+ Men’s Support Group. Our multi-specialty team of psychiatrists, residents, fellows, psychiatric nurses, licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors; certified addiction counselors and mental health associates utilize best practices to treat a full range of psychiatric disorders.

Emory University Hospital at Wesley Woods has taken a creative role in developing, improving and increasing our psychiatric services for the next decade.

Stay tuned to see what is next!
