Start an outpatient mental health clinic in Massachusetts

A recent report by the Association for Behavioral Healthcare, shows the clear need for more outpatient mental health clinics in the state.

This report not only described how clinics have had an increased wait list of almost 14,000 people, but the average wait for an assessment or therapy for children and youth was three weeks longer than waits for adults.

If you are a psychiatrist, psychologist or a licensed mental health clinician and have considered moving from a private practice model to an outpatient clinic model, the demand for these services can enable you to support community needs and quickly grow your mental health clinic.
