Child and Adolescent Outpatient Services

At McLean Hospital, we recognize the challenges children and adolescents with psychiatric illness face. Through our Child and Adolescent Outpatient Services, located on the campus of Sancta Maria Nursing Facility in Cambridge, we are focused on helping young people and their families cope with psychiatric illness and the trials it often brings.

However, there may be openings for other children and adolescents seeking outpatient treatment subject to the availability of staff.
