The Department of Public Affairs can help you identify experts and arrange interviews or photos. Public Affairs can also provide background information or help you develop story ideas about the latest advances in psychiatric research and treatment.

To arrange an interview or photo shoot, please contact the psychiatry public information officer.  Advance notice is appreciated and allows us time to obtain media consents from patients where appropriate. To ensure patient confidentiality and privacy, a public affairs staff person is required to accompany reporters, photographers and film crews during their time with Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
