Education & Training

At McLean Hospital, we invest in the future of mental health resources through our robust training programs for students and practicing professionals, as well as through public outreach to parents, teachers and community leaders. By way of these interactions, the hospital enhances the understanding of mental illness and helps to reduce its stigma, while at the same time, shaping the practice of mental health care.
