Portuguese Mental Health Program

The Portuguese Mental Health Program is a special program for people from Portugal, Brazil, and Cape Verde. Our work covers the fields of psychiatry, psychology, social work, and family therapy. We provide care in a safe and sensitive setting.

We can help with common, everyday issues including:

  • stress
  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • trauma
  • depression
  • child behavior/learning problems
  • adapting to life in the U.S.
  • marriage and relations issues
  • family violence
  • loss of a loved one
  • dealing with mental illness

Please note: Due to a high demand for our services, CHA is prioritizing appointments for patients who are either enrolled in Primary Care at CHA or are residents of our service area (Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Revere, Somerville, and Winthrop, MA). If you or your child do not meet these criteria, our staff may be able to assist you in finding a referral service.
