We will work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to ensure that you receive effective and compassionate care and to provide you with guidance and tools to help you better understand and manage your illness and symptoms, strengthen your resilience, and improve your mental health going forward.

We prepared this guide to provide an overview of what you can expect when you arrive at McLean and to address questions and concerns that you and your family may have. It was written with valuable contributions from McLean’s Patient and Family Advisory Council. We hope that you find the information helpful.

Thank you for placing your trust in McLean Hospital. Your health, comfort, and well-being are our highest priorities.
