Overview

Mission Statement

McLean Hospital is dedicated to improving the lives of people and families affected by psychiatric illness.

 

McLean pursues this mission by:

  • Providing the highest quality compassionate, specialized and effective clinical care, in partnership with those whom we serve
  • Conducting state-of-the art scientific investigation to maximize discovery and accelerate translation of findings towards achieving prevention and cures
  • Training the next generation of leaders in psychiatry, mental health and neuroscience
  • Providing public education to facilitate enlightened policy and eliminate stigma

Background Statement

McLean Hospital was founded on Feb. 25, 1811, through a charter granted by the Massachusetts Legislature for the "Massachusetts General Hospital Corporation." From its inception, the Corporation intended to treat both physical and mental illnesses, with a separate facility for each.

 

The hospital was first known as the "Asylum for the Insane" and was a division of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). When the Asylum opened in 1818, it was the first hospital in New England, and only the fourth special institution for the treatment of the mentally ill inAmerica.

 

In June of 1826 it was renamed "The McLean Asylum for the Insane" in honor of John McLean, a Boston merchant who bequeathed $25,000 and left a residuary legacy of more than $90,000 to the Asylum.

 

Today, McLean is a world leader in the clinical treatment of mental illnesses and chemical dependency, deeply committed to proving increased access to ever-better psychiatric care, engaging in research designed to discover superior models of treatment or prevention and offering programs to train health-care providers and educate the public. 

 

We maintain one of the largest neuroscience and psychiatry research programs of any private psychiatric hospital in the U.S. and are a major teaching facility of Harvard Medical School. In addition, we are an affiliate of MGH and a member of the Partners HealthCare, Inc., which allows for comprehensive coordination of medical and psychiatric services.

 

To ensure that we continue to deliver on our important mission, McLean conducted an in-depth strategic planning process to determine its future direction as the nation’s leading academic psychiatric hospital. This dynamic, comprehensive process, which was completed in 2008, was aimed at strengthening McLean’s ability to excel in its tripartite mission of excellence in clinical care, research and education.

 

The resulting roadmap articulated three key goals that inform McLean’s current work:

1 - Building centers of excellence and innovation that integrate clinical care, research and education, and focus on rapid translation of science in order to establish, deliver and disseminate ever better evidence-based approaches to care.

2 - Extending our services to address patient needs, leverage our capabilities and reach potential new markets.

3 - Developing innovative clinical models that are financially sustainable and that expand access and deliver demonstrably high-quality, cost-effective care.


Impact Statement

Private philanthropy made the following accomplishments possible in 2012:

RESEARCH: In 2012, McLean successfully recruited nationally-recognized investigator Christopher Cowan, PhD, whose Integrative Neurobiology Laboratory already has two major projects underway: one studying the role of autism-linked genes in early brain development, and the other to discover the link between drug abuse and its impact on later life brain development and how it influences behavior.

CLINICAL CARE: McLean’s first Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) advisors represent a cross-section of patients and family members whose first-hand knowledge of what it is like to receive care at McLean makes them uniquely suited to the task of advising McLean about how to improve the care experience.

McLean also launched the First Episode Clinic, providing patients with first-break bipolar disorder and their families with the care, support and education they need to navigate initial and ongoing care with optimal success.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING: Recognizing that there are few fellowship opportunities for Psychiatric Advanced Practice Nurses, McLean worked closely with a private foundation to develop the Nellie Blumenthal Fellowship, the nursing equivalent of a medical residency program. 

Future Goals include:

RESEARCH: To continue the recruitment of junior-level and mid-level faculty neuroscientists.

CLINICAL CARE: To identify a new facility for McLean SouthEast (McLSE), a satellite site providing comprehensive diagnosis of and treatment for individuals ages 16 and older with psychiatric illness. Currently located in Brockton, a larger facility would help us increase the number of beds and help fill a mounting need in one of the fastest growing and most underserved areas in the state, southeastern Massachusetts.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING: To explore the potential for a web-based continuing medical education program serving both internal and external constituencies.


Needs Statement

McLean needs philanthropy to support its tripartite mission of clinical care, education and research, and to grow its facilities. Specifically, we are looking for funding that will help us to pursue the following three goals:

·        To build centers of excellence and innovation that integrate clinical care, research and education, and focus on rapid translation of science in order to establish, deliver and disseminate ever-better, evidence-based approaches to care.

·        To extend our services, driven by mission, to address patient needs, while leveraging our capabilities in markets that are less reliant upon commercial and government payers.

·        To develop innovative clinical models that are financially sustainable, and that expand access and deliver demonstrably high-quality, cost-effective care.

Clinical Care

McLean provides a full continuum of care to meet the needs of each patient at each stage of treatment. Coordination with outside clinicians, social service agencies and patient families helps to ensure a smooth transition among levels of care, encouraging re-integration into community-based life. Crisis intervention and short-term acute inpatient care is available to stabilize individuals. Acute inpatient treatment is provided in many of the hospital's clinical programs. Comprehensive residential treatment is available for those who do not require the intensity of medical, psychiatric and nursing services offered in inpatient care. McLean provides partial hospitalization services in a variety of different programs both on and off campus. A comprehensive system of outpatient services provides flexible treatment options without hospitalization, providing the highest quality mental health resources to meet a wide variety of needs.

Program Short-Term Success 
Over the past decade, reserach has underscored how gender is often one important determinant of risk, prevalence, presentation, course and treatment of mental illnesses. This knowledge, coupled with McLean's continued expansion of programs exclusively for girles and women, triggered our development of the Women's Mental Health Initiative (WMHI), made possible thanks to a $300,000 anonymous donation. We are fortunate that we have national leaders in this field right here at McLean. We are looking at models that have been used nationally and globally and gathering ideas on best practices.
Program Long-Term Success 
Our overall aim is to develop an infrastructure for clinical care that integrates a comprehensive approach across programs and disciplines while promoting research and training. The Women's Mental Health Initiative - a new initiative - aims to develop a hospital-wide, multidisciplinary approach to the mental health and well-being of girls and women through the life span, integrating efforts throughout the clinical, research and training programs.

Examples of Program Success  A steering committee has been formed; and last November, a scientific symposium drawing on local and national experts in the area of women's mental health was held at McLean.

Education and Training

For more than 200 years, McLean has served as a beacon for those in search of greater understanding about how to provide ever better care for patients with psychiatric illness. As a thriving and nurturing academic community, we are proud of our accomplishments that have maximized learning, scholarship and productive inquiry and we take great pleasure in celebrating the successes of our students, investigators, clinicians and faculty on and beyond our campuses. By fostering the careers of tomorrow’s psychiatric leaders through mentorship, professional development and faculty support, we are ensuring that patients and their families will continue to receive the best and most-informed care possible for decades and centuries to come.

Program Short-Term Success 
An academic strategic plan was created, comprising 10 initiatives: 1) Faculty Development; 2) Post-Doctoral Fellows; 3) Clinical Trainees and Clinical Training Programs; 4) Nursing and Social Work Research and Career Development; 5) Continuing Education; 6) Increasing Clinical and Research Communication; 7) Improving Technology to Support the Academic Mission; 8) Implementing Practice-Based Evidence and Evidence-Based Practice; 9) Other Student and Trainee Programs; and 10) Faculty and Staff Academic Integrity. Areas of need were identified in each of these areas, and 3-4 short-term and multi-year goals were established for each.
Program Long-Term Success 
The McLean Academic Steering Committee (MASC) developed a vision for our growing academic programs at all levels of the institution. The goal is to advance our scholarly mission while enhancing the infrastructure for supporting career development through an array of educational opportunities for professional staff, faculty, trainees and the public. After a thoughtful process that engaged faculty and staff from across the McLean community, the group developed 10 initiatives that will be implemented over the next few years.

Examples of Program Success 

Although McLean is a hotbed of psychiatric research, investigations by hospital nurses and social workers represent only a small portion of this work. Nurses and social workers are doing the work of clinical care every day. It's important that their impact is supported by evidence-based practice. As part of its strategic agenda, McLean appointed an Interdisciplinary Research Committee to promote research and professional development among these staffers. One example of success is a quarterly research forum, which brings local and regional nurses and social workers to McLean to present aspects of their research or clinical work. These practitioners offer a range of expertise, including diagnostic-specific experience, innovations in clinical practice and research findings. This adds to the knowledge base of McLean's nurses and social workers, giving way for them to think about how they can use research in their practice and collaborate across disciplines.


Research

Since 1888 McLean has been dedicated to studying the role of biological factors in mental illness. Some of the most significant discoveries in the field of psychiatry have been made at McLean, shedding new light on the causes of and treatments for many complex neuropsychiatric disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. Today the hospital has over three acres of floor space dedicated to this important work. Research spans the spectrum from basic and translational research to clinical and services research, as well as program development and evaluation.No other psychiatric hospital or university department of psychiatry has a comparable range of basic laboratory, brain imaging and clinical research facilities dedicated to the study of major brain disorders. Rapid exchange of information between research and clinical specialties promotes immediate contributions to the mental health of patients and the public at large.

Population Served US& International
Program Short-Term Success 
Our research is designed to discover superior modes of treatment or prevention. For example, our Neuroregeneration Institute is moving in several promising directions. One area of investigation looks at the way certain neurons naturally protect themselves from Parkinson's disease, opening up possibilities for augmenting these defenses in more vulnerable neurons to prevent cell death. And because Parkinson's affects cells throughout the body, Dr. Isacson's work goes beyond the brain and looks at the disease from a holistic perspective.
Program Long-Term Success 
As a premier research center, McLean is dedicated to a full range of basic and clinical scientific inquiry designed to maximize discovery and lead to enhanced care. Our unique combination of groundbreaking research and innovative care benefits patients and families around the world. For instance, our Neuroregeneration Institute is leading a revolution where we look at cell biology as the source of knowledge for developing therapies to repair or re-grow neurons. Classically, we depended solely on neurochemistry or pharmacology to develop new treatments, but no longer.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success 
Dr. Ole Isacson and McLean's Neuroregeneration Institute are on the forefront internationally in developing regenerative medicine for a number of brain disorders and age-related illnesses. For example, in Parkinson's disease, Dr. Isacson is devising methods to generate new dopamine cells using a patient's own skin cells and transplanting those cells in the region of the brain where repair is needed. Additional funds are required to move this study toward clinical trials. Many of Dr. Isacson's group's findings have been recognized and honored by academic and industry partners. Further, the team is leading key consortia in the development of new technologies, such as induced stem cells and gene therapy.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
