Mental Healthcare - Adult Outpatient Psychiatry

Welcome to the Division of Adult Outpatient Psychiatry
Maine Medical Center!

    A division of Maine Medical Center.

A message from our director:

We are a large, multidisciplinary psychiatric clinic that provides comprehensive mental health services in Cumberland County. Our mission is to provide treatment that is focused on recovery, helping our patients reach their full potential for function and quality of life. 

The outpatient clinical teams offer comprehensive, coordinated and evidence based psychiatric care for patients with most types of mental disorders.  We specialize in treating individuals with complex, multiple problems.  Our psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, social workers, and nurses provide psychiatric treatment which includes psychopharmacologic treatment, individual and group therapies, and substance abuse treatment.  We also offer occupational therapy and vocational services with our employment specialists.  Consultations to primary care physicians and other medical specialists are provided on request. 

Services for patients with needs for more intensive levels of care are a key component of our program. The Partial Hospital Program offers intensive, daily treatment as both an alternative, as well as step down program to inpatient hospitalization.   Our Dual Diagnosis Intensive Outpatient Program is specially designed for individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse problems. 

The outpatient clinic is a training site for our future mental health providers in several disciplines.  As an affiliate of Tufts Medical School, we provide patient care experiences and clinical teaching for medical students.  Our psychiatry residency program trains physicians to become specialists in the field of psychiatry.  Our clinic is also a training site for masters level social work interns, psychology trainees, and advanced practice nursing students. 

Cindy Boyack, M.D., is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Psychiatry and serves as the Medical Director of Maine Medical Center’s Adult Outpatient Psychiatry Division and President-Elect of the Maine Medical Center Medical Staff.
