Who benefits most from Geriatric Psychiatry Outpatient Services?

Our outpatient programs provide evaluation and treatment services for a wide variety of emotional, behavioral, and cognitive symptoms that affect older adults.

The Memory Disorders Assessment Clinic focuses on individuals with late life attention deficit disorder, subjective memory impairment, mild neurocognitive disorder (MCI), and major neurocognitive disorder (dementia).

The Older Adult Clinic evaluates and treats older adults with an array of psychiatric diagnoses, including mood and anxiety disorders. We also provide consultation to community-based psychiatrists seeking assistance in treating those who have failed to respond to one or more antidepressant trials.

For older adults with mood and anxiety disorders who need a more intensive outpatient experience, the SAGE: Successful Aging through Group Engagement program offers a short-term experience that includes more frequent individual and group sessions.

Is family involved in treatment?

Family involvement in outpatient treatment is at the discretion of the individual or his/her authorized health care representative. We often include family members or other caregivers in our evaluation and treatment process.

Is smoking permitted?

Smoking is allowed in designated outdoor areas only. No smoking is allowed inside any of our buildings.

Are cell phones allowed?

Cell phone use is strongly discouraged during treatment and in the waiting room to prevent disruption of the program and others.

Can former patients access their medical records?

All requests for medical records should be directed to McLean's Health Information Management Department.

Are support groups offered?

To complement our programs’ services and encourage individuals’ initiatives in their own treatment course, many self-help groups are hosted by McLean.
