The INTERFACE Referral Service will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday from Wednesday, 11/24-11/26/21 and will re-open on Monday, 11/29/21. Messages left during this time will not be returned until after the holiday. We wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

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.

Peabody

Peabody is a city in Essex county, Massachusetts. Peabody is located in the North Shore region of Massachusetts and it is known for its rich industrial history. Originally known as the Northfields, Salem Farms, and Brooksby, the area was settled in 1626 by a small group of  English colonists from Cape Ann led by Roger Conant.  The name was changed to Peabody on April 30, 1868, in honor of  George Peabody, noted philanthropist born in present-day Peabody, widely regarded as the "father of modern philanthropy".
