Mass. Senator Kathleen O’Connor Ives Meets with Family Mental Health Therapists in Haverhill.
During her visit, Sen. O’Connor Ives learned about Lahey’s mental health services for local children and families. She also discussed how Haverhill-area residents can continue to access needed care.
The clinical team provides home-based services for families in 13 towns across the lower Merrimack Valley. Currently, the Haverhill-based group has 84 local families in their care.
In addition to the family-therapy team, Lahey operates three other programs in Haverhill: outreach counseling; an adult day treatment center at 200 Main Street and a mobile crisis emergency team at 62 Brown Street.
