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.


Walpole was founded in 1721 after a group residents petitioned the Town of Dedham to become a separate Town.Their petition was finally accepted in 1724 and they chose their town's name in honor of Sir Robert Walpole, who was the Prime Minister of Great Britain at the time. Walpole is a community abundant in local resources.
