APA TV Puts Spotlight on Top Treatment and Research Centers


One of the special experiences of attending the APA Annual Meeting in person is access to informative and engaging content produced by APA TV right from the comfort of your own hotel room. While that experience can’t be replicated this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can still check out some of the segments that APA TV put together this year, which highlight the work of some of our nation’s top psychiatric hospitals and learning institutions.

Eastern State Hospital:

Eastern State Hospital was the first psychiatric hospital in the nation. It was founded in 1773 on the principle that all individuals with mental illness are entitled to human dignity. Eastern State Hospital continues to believe in this mission. Eastern State Hospital is a 302-bed facility with more than 800 staff. The hospital has 15 units, each having its own multidisciplinary treatment team providing comprehensive psychiatric care for patients. Treatment teams typically provide care for approximately 20 patients.

Stanford University Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences:

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences of Stanford Medicine has a great tradition of fundamental science, translational and clinical research, subspecialty expertise, multidisciplinary education, and influential leadership. Diversity of thought is a powerful theme throughout the department and influences Stanford's most important role in the world: advancing truly transformative science of significance to human health, now and in the future.


Yale New Haven Hospital consistently ranks amongst the best in the country and has a long history of commitment to innovation and excellence in patient care, teaching, research and service to its communities. The psychiatric hospital continues to advance medicine by developing, testing and introducing leading-edge technologies, techniques, and treatments. APA TV offers a glimpse into these different treatment modalities and the expertise of Yale's brilliant staff.
