Community Supports / Resources
The district currently contracts with a referral service for residents seeking to connect with a mental health provider. The William James College INTERFACE referral service is available to all Lincoln residents. This referral service works to increase awareness and support of mental health issues impacting children and families. Residents seeking outpatient mental health services can call 617-332-3666, ext. 1, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm to speak with one of the resource and referral counselors.
These counselors will help residents find a mental health provider who matches four key criteria: the type of mental health provider needed to address the concern, the availability of the provider, the insurance coverage accepted by the provider, and the location or proximity preferred by the individual. The goal of the referral service is to help promote access to mental health care. This is a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL referral service.
The counselors at INTERFACE are extensively trained on a variety of mental health concerns and will conduct a 20-25 minute intake interview with the caller. The INTERFACE website, https://interface.williamjames.edu
, will provide you with additional information about services and resources related to mental health and wellness.
Psychologists and Social Workers in each building are aware of these services and can help to support parents/guardians with accessing this service.
