Boston Mental Health Resources

According to SAMHSA, 7.1% of those living in the Boston-Cambridge-Quincy area suffered a major depressive episode sometime over the past year. Up to 65% of Massachusetts residents report symptoms of anxiety or depression. Worse yet, nearly half of those who suffer from mental health issues never seek help – typically due to high costs.

Here are three completely free and confidential resources that any Boston resident (or any MA resident for that matter) can utilize. Professionally trained mental health specialists are standing by. Call today and explore your options.
