About

Our Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program at the University of Pennsylvania, consistently ranked among the top programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report, offers a holistic approach that blends neuroscience with psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • Significant advancements have been made in recent years in our understanding of neuroscience and human behavior and the effective treatment and prevention of mental illness. Yet, despite this progress, mental health issues are often minimized, mishandled, and insufficiently treated, shrouded in fear and shame. There is disparity in treatment across many populations, and a critical shortage of skilled mental health professionals that limits the ability of patients to get the care they so deeply need. Confounding this is a lack of diversity among health care providers who may not adequately understand cultural barriers to seeking care. This is something we are striving to change.
  • In our Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program at the University of Pennsylvania, you’ll benefit from a holistic approach that blends neuroscience with psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. You’ll work alongside faculty and mentors to advocate treatment of the whole person, blending mind and body in the context of the patient’s psychosocial environment.
