About Dr. Julio Mocellin Bernardi

Not sure if I can help you? Call or text me at 314-348-8018. I treat psychiatric and psychologic issues in clients 15 years old and above. I have experience with a broad range of conditions: * mood and anxiety disorders * ADHD * schizophrenia * addiction * relationship issues * work-related issues I was born and raised in Brazil, where I started my medical training at the age of 17 years old, which is not very common there. That was the first time I truly went to war to achieve something, and as a result I scored #2 out of 30,000 people on the entrance exam. Now I'm bringing that same energy to create one of the best private mental health practices in Chicago. I was always fascinated with how drugs affected the mind, since the beginning of my training. When I got to my med school psychiatry rotation and saw how skillful my teachers were in talking with patients and helping them using the spoken word, I was hooked and chose to become a psychiatrist. I decided early on to pursue further training in the United States. I like America quite a lot. I completed a residency in general psychiatry at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, affiliated with Washington University in Saint Louis. I am also certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. After residency I wanted to become a physician-scientist and research the pathways in the brain that lead to drug addiction. I did that for 3 years, and discovered some new areas in the brains of mice that might be important in the development of opioid addiction. I eventually decided that I would be happier as a private practice psychiatrist, and these days I pursue science/engineering topics on my own in my free time. I am starting a company to create a device to help curb addiction to cannabis concentrate products.
