Dr. John Campo is a nationally recognized expert in psychiatry, whose work leading personalized behavioral health care at Ohio State is changing lives throughout central Ohio.

Like Dr. Campo, the world’s best and brightest physicians and researchers are coming to Ohio State to create a new model for health care that is predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory. We call it P4 Medicine.

What attracted me to Ohio State? The opportunity to advance psychiatry and behavioral health care nationally by improving the quality of local behavioral health services here at Ohio State. As the chair of Ohio State’s Department of Psychiatry, I am committed to expanding the quality and quantity of our faculty and staff to meet the ever-increasing need for these services in central Ohio. Our initial success has strengthened my resolve to continue developing comprehensive, state-of-the-art behavioral health services relevant to individuals across each stage of life.

How am I advancing personalized health care at Ohio State? By working to integrate behavioral health services into general medical settings, we aim to demonstrate that health cannot be split into “physical” and “mental” categories. Suicide, for example, is an especially important public health problem, warranting personalized preventive efforts and a zero-tolerance approach that can be tested and applied across our community, including in emergency departments and primary care locations.

But for Ohio State... central Ohioans struggling with emotional, behavioral and addictive disorders would need to look beyond the boundaries of their community to receive personalized care.

Ohio State’s reputation for excellence is drawing world-class talent to Columbus. We have attracted more than 215 experts in 2 years, and 87 percent of central Ohio’s Best Doctors are Ohio State faculty. Through their skill and dedication, we are delivering on our promise to improve people’s lives, and giving central Ohioans access to the very best care.
