The Campaign is making strategic investments in the future of McLean. The primary thrust of the effort has been to establish seven Centers of Excellence focusing on:

  • Psychotic Disorders
  • Depression, Anxiety and Stress
  • Substance Use Disorders
  • Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • Women’s Mental Health
  • Basic Neuroscience

In addition, the Campaign for McLean Hospital seeks support to attract and support world-class leaders and to generate resources that will optimize patient outcomes.

“We are so encouraged by the extraordinary early success of this campaign,” said McLean President and Psychiatrist in Chief Dr. Scott L. Rauch. “Thanks to our generous community of donors, we have launched all seven of our Centers of Excellence, welcomed outstanding new talent, seeded new clinical programs, supported novel research and made tremendous strides in our strategic direction. The campaign goal is within reach, and meeting it will enable us to more fully realize our vision of improved access to care and accelerated discovery leading, one day, to prevention and cures.”
