If you would like to schedule an appointment with one of our providers please call the Borum at 617.457.8140 and speak to a Patient Services Specialist. We offer some walk-in Behavioral Health services – just ask about walk-in availability when you call. We also offer Behavioral Health outreach at a number of youth and LGBT settings, like Youth on Fire and Boston GLASS. Inquire with patient services about these outreach Behavioral Health services.

The behavioral health team believes in building a trusting relationship between client and clinician so that patients can have the best possible care. Treatment planning and goal planning is done as a collaborative process between clinician and client. We believe in meeting clients where they’re at! We attempt to address what brings our clients in the door rather then having our own clinical agendas.

If you are experiencing a clinical emergency please go to your nearest emergency room or call 911.
