In collaboration with the AB Regional District Schools, Town of Acton, Teenage Anxiety and Depression Solutions (TADS), AB United Way, and Danny's Place Youth Services, the PTSO is pleased to help provide this service to parents, students and educators.

The William James INTERFACE Referral Service is a mental health resource and referral Helpline available Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm which is available to residents and/or public school students in the Acton and Boxborough communities.

The INTERFACE service is supported in part by the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Suicide Prevention Program. The service collects, categorizes and makes available a wide range of critical 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.

What makes INTERFACE unique is that they do not provide merely a list of providers, but rather matched referrals to mental health professionals and practices who best meet the caller’s needs, insurance or fee requirement, specialty request, location, and availability. The Helpline is staffed by mental health professionals, as well as graduate level students from William James College.
