Since 1993, Penn Psychiatric Center has been providing individuals and families with onsite psychiatric, mental health and behavioral health services. Founded under the direction of Dr. Samir Farag, medical director and primary adult psychiatrist, the center has grown to include additional adult psychiatrists, a pediatric psychiatrist, a nursing staff and a staff of psychotherapists who see patients in Phoenixville and Collegeville.
Our staff works to identify, understand, and
resolve problems stemming from acute and chronic mental disorders, life
crises, and substance abuse. Penn Psychiatric Center offers a wide range
Outpatient services for children and adults so that each patient's
treatment is customized to his or her needs. For instance, the
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) program provides specifically
tailored counseling and group sessions for patients struggling with
borderline personality disorders and mood disorders. The
Clozaril program has been a trademark of our practice since its
opening, and continues to offer highly supervised medication management to
suppress symptoms associated with schizophrenia. In
In addition, theBehavioral Health Rehabilitation Service (BHRS) program provides community based and funded services for children ages three to twenty-one residing in Chester and Montgomery County. BHR services are delivered in the child's home, school or community setting with a focus being transfer of skills to primary care givers.
Penn Psychiatric Center is committed to treating and serving the psychiatric and mental health needs of the community. In 2002 NAMI Pennsylvania (The National Alliance for Mental Illness) awarded Penn Psychiatric Center the “Service Organization of the Year Award.”
The mission of Penn Psychiatric Center is to help individuals with mental illness recover through the highest quality services offered in the most effective and appropriate manner. To achieve this aim we offer an array of outpatient services that are individualized, strength based, and recovery-oriented. Recovery is facilitated in an environment that respects the individual's rights and choices, offers hope, and empowers everyone to achieve their potential.
The vision of Penn Psychiatric Center is to continually evaluate and improve all aspects of treatment, to develop programs responsive to individual and community needs, and to provide the highest level of care to patients and their families.
Our organization is founded on principles of integrity, compassion, and commitment. The staff at Penn Psychiatric Center is devoted to treating and serving the community with quality care.
