Department of Psychiatry

About us

The Department of Psychiatry in Beaumont Hospital provides psychiatric and psychosocial  assessment, diagnosis and management of patients with mental health problems within the general medical hospital, including the Accident and Emergency Department.  Clinical referrals are made on a consultation-liaison basis.

The aim is to help patients in hospital to process and cope with the impact of major illnesses and surgical procedures as well as loss and trauma. We also assess those patients with mental health problems that may have been aggravated by their admission to hospital, or may be manifesting as physical symptomatology.

There is a strong multi-disciplinary team approach to the assessment and management of all mental health problems, including addiction.
