We provide student-focused services to students in treatment throughout McLean Hospital. These interventions include psychoeducational groups, consultation to treatment teams, and meetings with individual students planning to return to college or take a medical leave of absence. When students enter a treatment program, we get involved as an adjunct to the overall treatment team.
In addition to the services we provide within the McLean community, we offer academic consultation, transition support, and psychoeducational outpatient services to students who are struggling to co-manage their mental health and academic lives. Our facilitator-led support sessions provide opportunities for students to collaborate with peers while learning necessary skills for managing stigma, strengthening campus support and relationships, and assessing readiness to increase academic and social demands.
Please visit our For College and University Professionals tab to learn about the unique ways in which we partner with the higher education community to support college students with mental health challenges more effectively.
