Mental Health Resources
The William James INTERFACE Referral Service collects and categorizes a wide range of valuable resources related to mental health and wellness for the benefit of the general public — children, adults and families — as well as educators and mental health professionals. In addition to the resources on their web site (INTERFACE), the William James INTERFACE Referral Service maintains a mental health and wellness referral Helpline Monday through Friday, 9 am-5 pm, at 888-244-6843 (toll free). This is a free, confidential referral service for individuals across the lifespan living in participating communities (including Plymouth). Callers are matched with licensed mental health providers from an extensive database. Each referral meets the location, insurance, and specialty needs of the caller.
