Mental Health Outpatient Services
While fostering person-centered planning in a safe and inviting environment, our outpatient clinics work to give children and adults the tools they need to manage their mental health issues and recover their lives.
Our team, which is trauma-informed and resiliency-oriented, includes University of Maryland School of Medicine psychiatrists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, occupational and recreational therapists, addiction counselors and trainees — all of whom are dedicated to providing high quality, comprehensive and integrated care.
Some conditions that UMMC Midtown Campus Outpatient Behavioral Health Center treats include:
- Stress-related problems
- Bipolar disorder
- Substance-induced psychiatric conditions
Both our clinic locations provide comprehensive mental health treatment with services that include:
- Individual, group and family therapies

Young Adults Early Intervention
The Carruthers Clinic's RAISE Connections program treats patients who have had any type of psychotic event. This early intervention program helps young adults between the ages of 15 and 35 within the first two years of the initial onset of mental health conditions.
The program provides patients with critical time intervention so that symptoms are detected early and treated effectively so they can continue to lay the foundation for their adult lives. Participants receive individualized services that may include:
- Social skills training
- Family education
- Medication management
- Locating a job
- Returning to school
- Substance abuse treatment

Our Continuous Care Team (CCT) at this clinic sees adults that need a slightly higher level of care than traditional outpatient care.
Patients come, often multiple times per week, for medication management, therapy and case management. Some may have their monthly income managed by their team.
