Ingalls outpatient space

Our outpatient programs include individual, group and family therapy as well as the following clinics:

Outpatient Psychiatric Treatment

General Clinics

Our general clinics are primarily for evaluating new patients with undiagnosed psychiatric disorders. We use these clinics as a starting point for your care program. Patients are evaluated in this program and will continue in the clinic for ongoing medication management. They may also be referred to a specialty clinic or individual provider for additional therapies (such as individual psychotherapy or group therapy) to treat identified problems.

Group Programs

Our group program currently offers both time-limited and ongoing groups for the treatment of mood disorders in women, chronic medical illness support, chronic psychosis support, anxiety disorders and personality disorders.

UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial offers a Grief and Loss Therapeutic support group, as well as Living with Schizophrenia support group.

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is an evaluation and treatment most commonly used to treat severe mood disorders, including major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder.

Treatments are performed in Hyde Park on outpatient appointments.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) can help individuals suffering from depression, stress, anxiety, chronic medical conditions, psychosis, grief and loss, trauma, or those experiencing the impact from a neurological disease or mild memory impairment.

IOP at UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), offered in Harvey, Tinley Park and Flossmoor, provides a higher level of support than traditional outpatient services and consists of three or four-hour sessions. The IOP group setting provides counseling, education and medication management designed to meet the clinical needs of the individual. Individual, family and specialty group therapies are available based on clinical need.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Patients in this program live at home while receiving intensive daily group therapy covering a variety of topics. Individual and family therapy are available along with medication management.

Group therapy at UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial led to marvelous breakthrough after decades of mental health struggles

It took 30 years for Calumet City resident Edward Murray, 73, to decide he needed a higher level of care for his lifelong struggle with depression. Recently, he sought treatment at the University of Chicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial Hospital and had a “marvelous breakthrough” in group therapy as part of the Intensive Outpatient Program, Murray said.
