BEHAVIORAL HEALTH HELPLINE ( BHHL)

On January 3, 2023, the Commonwealth launched the new Behavioral Health Help Line (BHHL) and established 25 Community Behavioral Health Centers (CBHCs). As part of the Roadmap for Behavioral Health Reform, these programs are increasing access to mental health and substance treatment for people across Massachusetts, and offer insurance-blind behavioral health crisis services to anyone in the state

This NEW Help Line is the Commonwealth’s “front door” for behavioral health needs. It connects callers to the full range of treatment services for mental health and addiction support through the Commonwealth. It can help in real time with immediate crisis intervention, urgent, and routine needs. The Help Line is available 24/7/365 in 200+ languages.

Many mothers—especially those with low incomes—struggle with depression and social isolation. Western Mass MOMS is designed to reduce depressive symptoms, improve social connections, and promote employment among caregivers. Viability, a local nonprofit social service provider, in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) is implementing Western Mass MOMS in Springfield and Holyoke, Massachusetts. We hope that this program will make major differences in caregivers’ lives!
