The Department of Psychiatry recognizes the exemplary expertise of our distinguished faculty
Steve Strakowski, MD, joined the IU School of Medicine in January and fulfills multiple roles with the Department of Psychiatry. As Executive Director of the Mary O’Daniel Stone and Bill Stone Center for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Evansville, Dr. Strakowski hopes to move southwestern Indiana toward a model youth mental health community and take learnings from that work to expand across the state.
Dr. Strakowski also serves as Vice Chair of Research with the goal of building the Department into a national research leader in the care of people with major mental illness and substance use disorders. And as a Professor of Psychiatry, he plans to continue building his past work using neuroimaging and longitudinal outcome studies to understand the neurodevelopmental emergence of bipolar disorder in adolescence and then the early course progression leading to a lifelong condition--to which there currently is no cure.
We welcome Dr. Strakowski to the team and look forward to his significant contributions.
