The Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Massachusetts General Hospital was established through a generous gift to the Department of Psychiatry in response to the extreme shortage of child and adolescent mental health clinicians in the U.S. today – roughly 7,000 to care for some 15 million young people who will require their services at some point in their lives.

Built on the belief that knowledge is power, The Clay Center aims to be a reliable and trusted source of information for parents and other caregivers on topics that span psychiatric disorders, general pediatric concerns and learning differences. By utilizing a combination of blogs, podcasts and online videos to deliver our content, we hope to:

  • Enhance resilience, a person’s ability to maintain personal and social stability despite adversity.
  • Increase awareness of mental health and learning challenges, and treatments available, among parents and those who work directly with young people.
