Massachusetts General Hospital’s Psychiatry Department is uniquely positioned to pioneer new models of care to remove barriers to treatment, end disparities in care and reduce the stigma of mental illness.

  • We have the largest clinical research program at the hospital and a long history of developing first-in-class technologies and scientific discoveries.
  • More than 60 specialty integrated clinical and research programs address nearly every aspect of psychiatric disorders and mental illness.
