The Clay Center is an educational resource only, and so we don’t provide clinical services or referrals for treatment. But our many partners here at MGH do.

Naturally, one of our biggest partners related to child and adolescent health is the MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC), which provides treatment and services for children of all ages in virtually every specialty and subspecialty of medicine and surgery, as well as preventive and primary care.

Dr. Gene Beresin and Dr. Steven Schlozman produced two short videos for MGHfC talking about mental health considerations for parents and other caregivers during their child’s inpatient and outpatient visits.

View Dr. Beresin’s video on Outpatient Pediatric Visits.

View Dr. Schlozman’s video on Inpatient Pediatric Visits.

There’s so much to think about when bringing your child in for a medical appointment that mental health is often overlooked. We hope these videos will help you to include behavioral, emotional and mental health within the context of your other questions and concerns, as part of addressing the overall health and well-being of your child.
