About Dr. Eric Cheung:

Dr. Eric Cheung is a Psychiatrist that specializes in the intersection between Psychiatry and Religion.

Dr. Cheung is available for medication management as well as therapy services.

Dr. Cheung trained at the University of Illinois for his Psychiatry Residency and graduated in 2020. He had a particular focus on cognitive behavioral therapy and psychotherapy during his training. Prior to that, he attended the Medical Scholars Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign where he pursued his dual MD/JD degree from 2009-2016. He went to the University of Illinois College of Law from 2009-2012 and then went to the University of Illinois College of Medicine from 2012 to 2016.

He obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration from CUNY-Baruch College from 2002-2006.

Dr. Cheung is particularly interested in the intersection between Psychiatry and Religion to help his patients. In his view, Psychiatry is very helpful in getting patients from a negative state of mind to neutral. There are many treatments and modalities available in the field of mental health to help those suffering from mental illness. However, mental health treatments are not well designed to provide guidance on meaning and purpose. Meaning and purpose help people go from neutral to a positive state of mind. This is where spirituality and religion can play a role to help people thrive. Dr. Cheung helps people discover their place in the world whether it be atheistic, agnostic, or theistic. For him, it is about the discovery of the self that matters, not any particular religious dogma, that provides holistic healing.

Dr. Cheung founded Chez Eric: Psychiatry, Religion, and Life which is a social media platform to discuss aspects of how Psychiatry and Religion can benefit your life. If you’d like to learn more, you can find content on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn as well as his own website www.chezericprl.com
