Yes! We are always recruiting for our research studies. For more information, please visit our research study page. You can also email us at CORDResearch@mgh.harvard.edu.
We accept most insurances; however, we highly recommend that you call your insurance company and ask if you have benefits to be seen at MGH. We bill as a group, not an individual provider. To learn more about the insurances we do not accept, please visit MGH Psychiatry FAQs.
Appointments are not scheduled immediately. If you are interested in being seen in the clinic, the first step is to complete an intake. Please note that completing an intake does not guarantee that an individual will be placed on our waitlist; however, we will offer referrals if we cannot see an individual.
Referrals are not necessary to complete an intake form, which is found on our website.
The intake is a brief questionnaire that will be completed by the individual seeking care. We will ask about insurance, some demographic information, a brief history of your symptoms, and what kind of treatment you are looking for. The intake takes about 15 minutes. For more information and to access our intake form, please visit our intake page.
Your intake will be presented at a staff meeting, and a recommendation will be made. If it is determined that we cannot see you at our clinic, we will offer you referrals. Please note that completing an intake does not guarantee that you will be seen in the clinic.
The wait time for an appointment will depend on the provider and specialty. Please reach out to us if you have any questions: 617-726-6766 or CORDClinic@mgh.harvard.edu.
The psychiatrist or psychologist who evaluates you typically makes a diagnosis after the first or second visit. As a next step, they will work with you to develop a treatment plan to address your goals and concerns. Length of treatment tends to be short-term lasting from 12-20 sessions, although this varies depending on treatment goals and progress.
