Founded in 1941 as California’s first neuropsychiatric institute, UCSF Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital and Clinics (LPPHC) consists of an adult inpatient unit, an adult partial hospitalization program, an adult intensive outpatient program, and adult/child outpatient services accounting for nearly 48,000 visits per year. It is located next to the UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights.
LPPHC is administered by the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Together, they constitute one of the largest units in the UCSF School of Medicine and the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences, with a mission focused on research (basic, translational and clinical), teaching, patient care, and public service.
Our faculty and staff members are recognized for their leadership roles in comprehensive and compassionate patient care, pioneering research, excellence in training the next generation of leaders, advancing public policy to advance mental health, and commitment to diversity. We are dedicated to advancing mental health across the lifespan for the people of the Bay Area and northern California.
