Community Resources

Elder Mental Health Community Resources in the Lowell, Massachusetts Area

The following is a listing of Lowell Area agencies that provide mental health services for elders.

  • For many there is not a designated program/service but an expressed availability to provide these services.
  • Each agency has provided their own information without oversight or approval from the Greater Lowell Elder Mental Health Collaborative (GLEMHC). We did not evaluate the effectiveness of any of their services.
  • Currently this listing is limited to agencies in the Lowell, Massachusetts area.
  • Consider the following steps when seeking services when contacting an agency or making a referral:

    1. Describe the problem (s) in your own words.

    2. Identify who this is about (yourself, relative, friend, client, etc.).

    3. Identify your relationship (spouse, child, friend, provider) to the individual above in # 2.

    4. What do you want to happen (outcome)?
