The child and adolescent inpatient services are offered at Franciscan Hospital for Children in Boston, Massachusetts. The McLean/Franciscan Mental Health Programs are a joint effort which unites the strengths of a premier mental health provider with a nationally recognized leader in pediatric rehabilitation and special education.
All children and adolescents receive a diagnostic evaluation and assessment of the severity of symptoms, presenting problem and cognitive functioning. Treatment integrates case management services with family, school and agency support systems.
