At McLean Hospital, our staff, faculty, volunteers, and supporters are dedicated to improving the lives of people and families affected by psychiatric illness. As the largest psychiatric affiliate of Harvard Medical School, McLean has been meeting the needs of individuals and families with psychiatric illness since our founding in 1811. McLean is dedicated to making our programs and services easily accessible while creating a welcoming, safe, and respectful environment for all.
We are here to help you.
If you are in crisis, are suicidal, or are a danger to others, please call 9-1-1 or visit your nearest emergency room. Do not wait.
If you are seeking psychiatric services, you need a referral from a psychiatrist, therapist or crisis team before coming to McLean. If you are currently in crisis and cannot wait for your therapist or psychiatrist to facilitate an admission, please go to the closest hospital emergency room.
If you would like to come to McLean for alcohol or drug detoxification, you may refer yourself and do not need a referral from a psychiatrist, therapist or crisis team; however, you do need to call to check on bed availability.
If you have questions or are seeking admission, please call Admissions at 800.333.0338.
When you arrive at our Belmont or Middleborough campus, the first step is a diagnostic psychiatric evaluation to further assess your need for hospital care. If hospitalization is needed, we will identify which of our programs is best suited to meet your needs. More information can be found in the Guide to Arriving at McLean: Helpful Information for Patients, Their Families and Friends, a copy of which will be provided to you when you arrive at McLean.
McLean Hospital offers services for a wide variety of psychiatric conditions and can help individual of all ages, including specialized programs for children and adolescents, adults, and older adults.
