Mental Health Resources 

Social distancing and the stress of a pandemic can be really tough on our mental

health. Fortunately, there are plenty of resources if you need help during this time.

 You are not alone. 

Telehealth: The Healey-Driscoll Administration mandates that MassHealth, commercial insurers, self-insured plans, and the Group Insurance Commission to cover medically necessary telehealth services. Talk with your insurance provider or mental health clinician to discuss options available to you.
