Welcome to Fenway Health’s Behavioral Health Department

In keeping with Fenway Health’s commitment to care for the whole person, behavioral health is a fundamental part of our primary care model. We offer individual, group, couple, and family therapy; psychiatric consultation; and addiction services.

We can help you deal with a range of personal issues and life events. Whether you are coming out, coping with self-esteem issues, seeking more satisfying relationships, living with HIV, trying to stop drinking, or grieving the death of a partner, we provide high-quality care that is sensitive to LGBT concerns.

Services include evaluation and referrals; counseling for myriad issues; therapy and support groups; psychiatric evaluation and treatment; and daily acupuncture for alcohol and drug addiction. See our calendar section for selected programs and upcoming special events.
