NEW FOR 2024: The Psychiatry Department has implemented a new process for House Officers to utilize for receiving Mental Healthcare that does not require them to utilize their attendings. The Department has worked out a new partnership with MSU that allows residents to utilize services there. To utilize this program, House Officers in the Psychiatry Department seeking evaluation and care may contact April Wesner by emailing MentalHealthProgram@med.umich.edu or calling 734-763-9853. When you identify yourself as a psychiatry trainee, April will connect you directly with Nikki Peterson, clinic manager at MSU. Nikki will gather the necessary information, including insurance, and schedule you with one of the approved MSU faculty members. Appointments may be virtual or in person, depending on the trainee’s preference.
