Some parents find that Collaborative Problem Solving is an approach that they can use successfully on their own to help their child with behavioral challenges. Others find that our parent, groups, trainings, and materials help achieve their goals. However, you may find that you need more specific and individualized help to be successful.
Our Think:Kids Clinic provides outpatient clinical services through the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Our clinic is located at 151 Merrimac Street in Boston, MA.

To set up an appointment in our Think:kids clinic, call: (617) 643-6030 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prior to your first appointment, we ask that you please complete our Parent Intake Form.
Please contact your insurance provider before your first appointment. We want you to be sure that you have appropriate coverage for outpatient mental health visits.
Below is a list of insurers with whom we are presently contracted to provide treatment:
- Beacon Health/Neighborhood Health Plan
- Blue Cross Blue Shield (Indemnity, Managed Care, Partners Plus)
- Fallon Select
- Harvard Pilgrim/United Behavioral Health
- MassHealth*/Medicaid/MBHP – *Please call us to find out which MassHealth plans are accepted: (617) 643-6030
- United Behavioral Health
Please Note that we ask each parent/caregiver that might be participating in treatment to obtain an MGH medical record number (by calling 866-211-6588) and each complete a Parent Intake Form, because our initial consultation might result in a recommendation for both parents/caregivers to be enrolled in one of our groups. Once we have received a completed copy of all Parent Intake Forms, we will be in contact to set up your parent consult appointment.
At the parent consult appointment, you and the clinician will determine whether our program is appropriate for your needs, and if so whether to start with a Parent Therapy Group or Family-Based Therapy.
If you are unable to obtain an appointment, or if we are not a convenient or practical option for you, please refer to the “Help” tab here on our website, where you can find a list of local-area providers trained in our approach.
