Fenway Health was founded nearly fifty years ago to serve the LGBTQIA+ community, and to support and advance the health and well-being of the people in our community who count on us. Fenway’s Behavioral Health department has played a central role in that fight, serving as a beacon for hope and a source of healing and recovery for countless individuals. To ensure that we deliver fully on our mission, we are committed to centering racial equity and other intersectional considerations in everything we do.
We are living in challenging times, and people everywhere – especially in BIPOC and other communities that are disproportionately impacted by health disparities – are experiencing heightened stress and other challenges to their health and well-being. The demand for Behavioral Health services at Fenway Health is unprecedented.

Behavioral Health Internships
For the past 20 years, Fenway’s Behavioral Health Department has trained graduate and post-doctoral students in the field of mental health and addiction services. Most students are placed at Fenway for the academic year, but occasionally we accept students for a summer block placement.
We utilize an interdisciplinary approach with our staff, which is comprised of social workers, mental health & HIV counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, victim advocates, substance abuse case managers/counselors, health promotion educators, and acupuncturists. Our theoretical orientation is predominantly psychodynamic; however, with active substance abuse and acute PTSD clients the emphasis may be on cognitive behavioral and psychoeducational approaches.
