We at the William James College INTERFACE Referral Service are keenly aware of the shortage of mental health providers of color and how racial inequities exist in medical and mental health care. The College’s Black Mental Health Academy, Center for Multicultural and Global Mental Health, and other programs and academic offerings are playing a critical role in reversing this trend. We invite you to read a statement from our Black Mental Health Graduate Academy Scholars, and to stand with us as allies to drive change and address systemic racism.


IMPORTANT CHANGE: Please call or email the Needham Community Access Point Person Sara Shine at sshine@needhamma.gov  or 781-455-7500 ext. 264, who will provide resource information and/or connection to INTERFACE Referral Service for outpatient mental health provider referrals from a trained resource and referral counselor.  Callers directly to the Helpline will be redirected back to Sara, per Needham's contract with INTERFACE.
