Supporting the emotional and mental health of our clients and families is an important part of our work to help people build a strong foundation for resilience and well-being across the lifespan.

Whether someone needs short-term support during a life transition or challenging situation, or ongoing support to manage a chronic condition, JF&CS is here to help.

Information & Referral Services

Mental Health Connect is our free, confidential information and referral service. Contact us or call 781-693-5562 to talk with a JF&CS mental health professional who will take the time to understand your situation and connect you with expert advice and appropriate resources, including matches to therapists.

Support Groups and Social Programs

Find a community and support with others facing similar mental health challenges. A wide range of groups and programs for every kind of mental health need.

Support for Adults

Find help and find hope with music therapy, spiritual support, social groups, bereavement support groups, groups for suicide loss survivors and survivors of domestic abuse, and so much more. We also offer a six-to-eight week virtual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program in partnership with McLean Hospital and Combined Jewish Philanthropies. The therapist finder service can also help take uncertainty out of the search for a therapist. 

Support for New Parents

New parents may find it hard to ensure their needs are being met while raising a new baby. Our support groups and consultations can aid parents who are feeling isolated, overwhelmed, and adjusting to parenthood.

Support for Families with Children

Hands-on assistance and advocacy, including special education advocacy, for parents of a child with mental health challenges. You can also learn about our recreational group Sibshops for children who have a sibling with special needs, and consultations for parents of a child with a disability.

Support for Community Organizations

JF&CS experts provide training and support to integrate knowledge and practice and meet the needs of professionals and public and private organizations working with infants, young children, and families; people with disabilities; and older adults.

"And what I'm doing is I'm calling to say thank you because [Mental Health Connect staff] is the first person who's actually gotten back to me and said that there is hope and there's something that she may well be able to do. And so I'm calling to say, thank you."
