Treatment is usually provided at the patient's bedside, an assigned hospital room or in a group therapy setting. If the patient is able to leave his or her hospital room Psychiatric Occupational Therapy (OT) may be offered in the Occupational Therapy (OT) treatment room (Cleveland Clinic Main Campus - Building P7).

Psychiatric Occupational Therapy (OT) works closely with Nursing to maintain excellent and prompt communication related to patient care. A coordination of care is assured by involving Social Services, Nutrition Therapy and Pastoral Care. The MD Consult Team from Psychiatry also refers patients to Psychiatric OT. Likewise, if a patient is identified as having either a psychiatric history, or a new onset of symptoms, Psychiatric OT will encourage the attending physician to refer the patient to the Psychiatric Consult MD Team for diagnostic evaluation, counseling and psychopharmacological treatment.
