Mount Sinai’s Department of Psychiatry is a national model for translating scientific discoveries into treatments for patients. Our researchers collaborate with geneticists, neuroscientists, molecular biologists, and neurologists to zero in on the physiological components that lead to psychiatric disease.

The Department of Psychiatry is ranked #6 in the nation for NIH funding with more than $30 million, and our investigators have been at the forefront of many of the latest breakthroughs in the field.
