The Human Services department is staffed with master’s level, licensed clinical social workers and provides time-limited counseling services for any Falmouth resident or town employee who is unable to access mental health care in the private sector. This may include residents with no health insurance or those who are unable to afford their co-pays and deductibles, or for any other reason that may hinder access to services.
Counseling services are provided to individuals, families, couples, children/teens age 11 plus, and seniors. Home visits may be scheduled based on medical need. Advocacy and case management services are provided to any Falmouth resident who may need assistance obtaining other community services. Clinical consultations are also available to all Falmouth residents to assist in taking steps to address mental health-related concerns for themselves and/or family members. Support and psycho-educational groups are scheduled periodically.
All services provided at Falmouth Human Services are free of charge. For this reason, counseling services are time-limited and efforts are made to refer clients to mental health providers in the community for longer-term counseling services. The length of counseling services varies based on client need and can be provided for up to 6 months.
