Improving Mental Health: Accelerating Access to Care

Improving mental health is one of the top priorities of Accelerate: The Campaign for UW Medicine. Led by UW Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, the $50 million mental health campaign is bringing together the efforts of UW Medicine and its broad set of collaborators across the UW campus and in the community to improve mental health in our region.​​​​

UW Psychiatry is a world leader in creating innovative programs that improve access to effective mental health care. As the only academic psychiatry department in the region and the largest psychiatry training program in the country, we’re poised to support and transform the region’s mental health needs. We believe that there is no health without mental health and envision a world where everyone gets the care and treatment they need.
