Swapnil Gupta is Associate Professor and Medical Director of Ambulatory Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital. She was trained as a psychiatrist both in India as well as the United States, at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Yale University, developing the skills of phenomenological, psychodynamic and neurobiological approaches towards distressing psychological experiences.

She started her career as an academic psychiatrist researching the role of the endocannabinoid system in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Her subsequent scholarship has focused on the application of deprescribing, or the systematic reduction of superfluous medications, to the discipline of psychiatry by rooting it in the principles of recovery-oriented care. She has authored numerous peer-reviewed papers on the topic of deprescribing including a book published by OUP (2019).

She serves on the boards of two organizations dedicated to increasing stakeholder participation in psychiatric research and is on the editorial board of the Community Mental Health Journal. Her current projects include developing educational materials on deprescribing psychotropics and eliciting knowledge and attitudes about deprescribing among psychiatrists.
