Many people suffer from mental illness, often in silence, and don’t receive the treatment they need to live healthy and productive lives. That’s why experts at University Health Partners (UHP) and the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) are committed to making mental health services and treatments available and accessible.
Mental health encompasses everything from depression & anxiety to alcohol or substance abuse. Mental health challenges often occur with chronic medical diseases & can substantially worsen associated health outcomes.
We are the faculty practice of the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine.
University Health Partners of Hawaii – Psychiatry
Not Accepting New Patients at this Time.
Currently, about 25% of people will experience a mental health issue of some kind over their lifetime. If mental health issues are not effectively treated, they can impair self-care, increase mortality & lead to decreased work productivity while substantially increasing overall healthcare costs.
University Health Partners of Hawaii employs an integrated, patient-centered approach to quickly identify & treat patients who need help. We consult with a patient’s regular doctor so that the patient can effectively receive treatment in their own doctor’s office.
