City Opens Emotional and Mental Health Drop-In Support Center

The Boston Fire Department released this image of a deserted Boylston Street at noon on Tuesday.

The Boston Public Health Commission has opened a new drop-in center to provide emotional support to anyone affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

People have experienced a wide range of emotions following the bombing and the BPHC is offering sessions with trained clinicians to speak with anyone who needs to talk.

This free service is available at the Boston Area Health Education Center at 729 Massachusetts Avenue from 2 to 6 p.m. through Friday this week. Free parking is available at the adjacent garage at 35 Northampton Street.

The center will offer one-on-one time with trained clinicians as well as facilitation of group conversations. The city encourages groups from particular workplace or community members affected by the attack.

The Mayor’s Health Line will continue to provide free trauma counseling and support over the phone. They can be reached at 617-534-5050, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m..  read more
