Amidst a lovely, tree-filled campus in Belmont, Massachusetts sits one of the nation’s preeminent psychiatric facilities, McLean Hospital. Located just outside Boston, McLean’s suburban setting offers a unique therapeutic opportunity for people with behavioral health issues.
McLean Hospital opened its doors in 1811 as the original psychiatric department of the Massachusetts General Hospital and as the first psychiatric hospital in New England. Since then, McLean has been a world leader in the treatment and study of psychiatric illness and the training of generations of clinicians and investigators. Today, McLean is treating more patients, performing more research and teaching more trainees than ever before.
The largest psychiatric facility of Harvard Medical School and an affiliate of the Massachusetts General Hospital, McLean Hospital is consistently ranked one of the nation’s top psychiatric hospitals. It offers a full spectrum of care for all psychiatric disorders for people of all ages. McLean is the most successfully funded private psychiatric research facility in the country. Its research program is supported by $45 million per year of competitively won grants, supporting everything from basic neuroscience to clinical trials.
McLean is proud to continue and advance its long history of eating disorder treatment and research. We look forward to a future of innovation, improving the quality of life for those we serve.
