Research Psychiatric Center has one outpatient clinic location in the Kansas City area. After an individual has received treatment on an inpatient unit they often “step down” to outpatient therapy so they can be provided with less restrictive education and support, which enables the patient to function successfully outside of the hospital. The outpatient clinics can also be helpful in avoiding a crisis situation, such as when an individual is struggling emotionally or battling an addiction but does not require inpatient hospitalization. Please contact either the call center or any of the outpatient clinics to schedule a confidential appointment.
Outpatient Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)
We offer ECT to consenting adults both as inpatients and to those outpatients referred to us by their personal physician or psychiatrist. Patients using this service arrive early in the morning for pre-procedure preparation and stay in the hospital for approximately four hours, from treatment through recovery.
