Mental Health Services for Older Adults

Older adults sometimes face mental health issues and don't know where to turn. At CHA, our award-winning Department of Psychiatry cares about older adults, and has different programs to help with behavioral, emotional, or cognitive problems.

CHA Everett Hospital

Hospital Care at the Geriatric Psychiatry Specialty Unit (GPSU)

Specially-designed hospital services for older adults with acute mental health needs - located at CHA Everett Hospital. Learn more here.

Outpatient Care

Expert counseling and therapy services for adults 60 and older. We help people deal with problems such as depression or changes in behavior or mental status. We have over 30 years experience providing quality mental health care in coordination with our older adult partners. Our office is in Somerville, and we offer limited home visit services. To find out more, call our referral line at 617-591-6033. All patients must currently have a PCP at Cambridge Health Alliance.

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.
