Residents are invited to a meeting at Volunteer Hall at the Harvard Public Library to learn about a new service that is available beginning July 1. The meeting will be at 10 a.m. on June 6.
Project INTERFACE, an initiative of the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, works to improve the integration of mental-health services within schools and communities and to improve access to these services for individuals.
Project INTERFACE will be available to assist in finding appropriate mental-health services for Harvard children, families and young adults up to age 24 years.
Information related to mental-health questions and services for children, families and adults, including a calendar of community trainings and events will be available at www.projectinterface.org.
The Project INTERFACE Community Resource & Referral Helpline is also available. Callers are provided professional, personalized counseling referrals matched for location, specialty and insurance or fee requirements. The Helpline is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 617-332-3666, ext. 411, or toll free 1-888-244-6843, ext. 411.
Funding for this service is generously provided by the Harvard Schools Trust, Harvard Lions Club, Harvard Public Schools and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
