As a parent, I understand how difficult it is to help your child live safely and access necessary mental healthcare while experiencing psychosis. From first-hand experience, I know that sub-acute care for individuals with psychotic disorders can be extremely hard to find and is often prohibitively expensive. I have established the Living Assistance Fund at McLean Hospital to increase access to care for individuals with psychotic illness who cannot otherwise afford the care they need.

We are happy to be supporting McLean Hospital in establishing its very first PACT* program to help more families every year. McLean has the unique opportunity to develop a PACT program that fills a void between currently available options (read more). In keeping with the goals of The Living Assistance Fund, the new PACT service will include a scholarship bed and increase access to high-quality care to people in need. We believe health insurers may be interested in covering care of this type in the future which would help address financial barriers to access. Our first step is establishing the program here at McLean and we appreciate your help! Be sure to keep up-to-date on our progress by joining our newsletter mailing list.

Thank you for supporting the Living Assistance Fund at McLean Hospital. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of patients and families in need.

Sincerely,
Monica Luke
