Fact Sheet (pdf)

Joseph Gold, MD, Clinical Director

The Child and Adolescent Program (CAP) at McLean Hospital is one of the foremost clinical programs for helping young people and their families cope with psychiatric illness and the challenges it often brings. We offer a full spectrum of services: acute inpatient, partial hospitalization, short-and long-term residential, outpatient treatment and specialized academic programs, which are designed to emphasize each young person's strengths and promote recovery. Rapid, state-of-the-art diagnosis is integrated with thorough psychosocial assessment so that treatment is tailored to each child's needs.

To achieve the best possible integration of education with treatment, McLean has developed special education schools and a Child and Adolescent Testing Service (CATS). We also use classroom-based models on the residential and inpatient units.
