People often face new challenges as they age. At CHA, we understand and are here to help.

Many of our patients are coping with new health concerns, or changes in employment or housing. Some have lost friends and family members, and others are beginning to lose their independence or their ability to care for themselves. 


We Know How to Help

Cambridge Health Alliance is a leader in mental health care. Our geriatric psychiatry team has deep connections in the community. We will help you access expert mental health care at CHA and beyond - giving you the tools and resources to manage your needs, in a local setting.

Your Culture, Your Language

CHA is proud to serve patients from across the globe. We offer bilingual providers and interpreters in 75 languages, including patients who are deaf or hard of hearing. This makes mental health care more accessible for patients who may be hesitant to seek out these services.

Emotional Healing and Wellness

Staff at CHA genuinely and deeply care about adults and their families during difficult times. We get to know our patients, work to understand their needs and how we can best help to achieve better health. We also use state-of-the-art research to inform our treatment plans.

Unparalleled staff

Most of our doctors and social workers are on the faculty of Harvard Medical School. This gives you access to some of the best clinical care teams in our convenient neighborhood care centers.
