The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri School of Medicine is a leading provider of psychiatric care for the region. Over the last few years, the department has  experienced a dramatic transformation and has realized its vision of a new acute care child and adult inpatient facility that integrates mental health care with other medical care, resulting in a better environment for patients, as well as for medical students, residents and staff.

In 2009, John Lauriello, MDarrived as Chancellor's Chair of Excellence in Psychiatry and medical director of the newly opened University of Missouri Psychiatric Center (MUPC). Since then, more than 10 new faculty members have joined the department and  the center has undergone  a more than $13 million renovation, which has resulted in the construction of three state of the art inpatient wards, as well as consolidation of Departmental offices and meeting space in  a single location.
