Boston Children's Hospital Neighborhood Partnerships Community Health Center Initiative

About Community Health Center Initiative


The Community Health Center Program includes partnerships with two community health centers in Jamaica Plain.  Boston Children’s child and adolescent psychiatrists work on-site to provide early identification, assessment, treatment, and care coordination services to children and adolescents receiving primary medical care at the health centers. The psychiatrists also provide behavioral health training and consultation to health center staff.

Health Center Partners:

  • Brookside Community Health Center, Jamaica Plain, MA
  • Martha Eliot Health Center, Jamaica Plain, MA


What our partners say about us:

“It is so good for patients to have easier access to psychiatry in a familiar environment.  I know patients like having the BCHNP psychiatrist as their doctor.”

“The BCHNP psychiatrist is an integral member of the child team, a valuable resource to child clinicians, and also an important consultation resource to the center pediatricians.”
