McLean SouthEast Adult Psychiatric Partial Hospital Program

The McLean SouthEast (MSE) Adult Psychiatric Partial Hospital Program is located in Middleborough, Massachusetts. Established in 1999 in conjunction with the MSE Adult Psychiatric Inpatient Program, the programs provide mental health care and resources to patients and families in the southeast region of the state, including Cape Cod and the Islands. As the most comprehensive psychiatric program in the area, MSE offers thorough, individualized diagnosis and treatment.

Covered by most health insurance providers, our day program is most appropriate for individuals ages 17 and older experiencing psychiatric illness that may be related to mood and anxiety disorders, with or without co-occurring mental health conditions such as drug and alcohol abuse. With average participation between 7 and 14 days, we accommodate up to 16 individuals in need of more intensive care than is offered through outpatient services. The program operates Monday through Friday, 9am to 3pm.

MSE is located in a recently renovated one-story building in a private, suburban neighborhood. The spacious facility, with landscaped grounds and comfortable common areas, offers a warm and welcoming environment that is conducive to treatment and rehabilitation. Our two private, well-designed courtyards are ideal for breaks between treatment sessions.

Patients in both our inpatient and partial hospital programs follow structured schedules—combining group, family, and individual therapy—targeted at reducing the severity of the patient’s symptoms and focused on different cognitive behavioral therapy strategies to prevent relapse. Designed to engage patients in their recovery, each day is carefully planned with ample time for self-focus, team meetings, treatment, and expressive arts therapy.

According to the National Institutes of Mental Health, 6.9% (16 million) of US adults live with major depression.

We understand that psychiatric illness affects not only the individual but also the entire family, which is why our compassionate and experienced staff takes a comprehensive approach to treatment and recovery, incorporating loved ones in patient care as appropriate.

Our evidence-based treatment and therapy models are informed by cutting-edge research conducted at McLean and around the world. By incorporating various approaches, treatment can be customized for each individual to help ensure recovery. Our expert staff specializes in a wide range of mental health disorders and is devoted to improving the quality of life of patients and their families.
