Baker-Polito Administration Announces Crisis Counseling Assistance Program

As part of its efforts to support the behavioral health needs of Massachusetts residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, today, the Baker-Polito Administration announced the availability of a new crisis counseling assistance program. The new program, MassSupport, is funded through a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) made available through the federal disaster declaration. Riverside Community Care is providing the crisis counseling under contract with the Department of Mental Health.

Riverside Trauma Center will deploy its trauma response and crisis intervention expertise in a statewide initiative to bring behavioral health resources, information, and referrals directly to individuals and communities.

To reach MassSupport, anyone in the state can call 888-215-4920 to be connected with local support.

Counseling is available in English and Spanish.
