My daughter has received the best care here. And she has been to several others so she has a good frame of reference. What impressed me the most is how they treat everyone, every single person, with the utmost in respect and dignity. Highly recommended!

I was at McLean for 2 weeks and they really helped me. It was super clean and felt homey. The clinicians were really experienced. I could tell, and they broke everything down so well. Group therapy helped me so much, and dbt skills training. This place really helped me figure out how to manage my illness, and ways to cope. They also educated us a lot about our illness, nutrition, lifestyle changes, and triggers and relapse prevention. No place is perfect but check this place out if you need mental health services. It’s worth a shot.

I’ve been to a few hospitals in Massachusetts over the past 20 years. This hospital is hands down one of the best. If you’re ready to get sober and take control of you’re life this is the place to be.

Wow! The program at the Hill Center for women completely changed my life. Truly amazing, I never thought there existed, such a program that is capable of accomplishing such incredible results.

Awsome care some of the nurses though like the pain meds alittle more than they should? They should be more careful slipping the patients meds under the med tray.hopefully it doesn't go on anymore.

McLean Hospital is without a doubt, the most highly structured mental health hospital in the United States. The level of care offered here is unprecedented. The hospitals grounds are that of a university campus. With lots of buildings spread throughout a beautiful, peaceful plot of land that is relaxing, calming and full of nature. McLean Hospital's many buildings are very old, but the are magnificent architectural structures that are very well maintained. Inside the buildings are absolutely breathtaking and very clean. The staff is very friendly for the most part. I think there are staff there that may not be liked by some people, while praised by others. I have been a patient here multiple times over the last five years, or so. I've had very good experiences and interactions with staff, for the most part. In a few negative instances, it was usually my mental illnesses that blocked my communication with staff and it was my emotions that prevented a positive experience. McLean remains the oldest asylum still in operation, in the United States to date. They have the very latest, cutting edge therapies and techniques and all the brain scan imaging equipment available. McLean is also a field leader in psychiatric studies. Don't be imposed by the appearance of Mclean's brick, gothic-like buildings. The are impressive works of architecture and proof that McLean Hospital has certainly stood the test of time. It's a beautiful place and the atmosphere inside the buildings is warm and friendly. Great structured programs, attentive friendly staff and a very clean environment. Once again, voted number one psychiatric hospital in the US for many years, I say "Thank you McLean." Thank you for being there for me when I was truly desperate and needed your help. Thank you for keeping me alive giving me hope and teaching me that I get back from the program only what I was willing to contribute. As everything in life. ~Kristen

People this is a psychiatric hospital. I had to request and beg for my son to return. He was there four years ago and still we do not have a med that works and he is willing to take consistently. Mental illness is still a trial and error area with not enough funding. They do have the best doctors but a lot of the time their hands are tied by the insurance companies for length of stay and number of treatments they can try. Compared to what is out there Mcleans is at the top. I feel luck to have my son there again.
