University of Maryland Medical Center Walter P. Carter Carruthers Clinic
The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) Walter P. Carter Clinics are community mental health clinics that provide comprehensive mental health treatment and case management services primarily to residents of Baltimore City. Here, a multidisciplinary health team of psychiatrists, social workers and nurses provide services to adults, children and adolescents.
The clinic is a trauma informed, recovery-oriented program focused on helping individuals manage their problems and recover their lives in a safe and inviting environment that fosters person centered planning. The program consists of 3 components:
- The Adult Team provides individual, group and family therapies, as well as medication management, case management, and substance abuse services.
- The Child and Adolescent Team provides psychiatric treatment to children 5-18 years of age and their families. Services include individual, play, group and family therapies, medication evaluation, socialization groups, and consultation with schools and other community agencies involved with the child.
- RAISE is an early intervention program for young adults ages 14-23 struggling with the initial onset of severe illness.
There are two clinic sites: The UMMC Walter P. Carter Fayette Clinic located at 701 W. Pratt Street, and the UMMC Walter P. Carter Carruthers Clinic, located at Maryland General Hospital.
