MA Responds, a Network of Providers for State Emergencies
The Massachusetts Medical Society assists the MA Department of Public Health (DPH) with the state’s online volunteer registry, MA Responds. MA Responds is a partnership that integrates local, regional and statewide volunteer resources to identify, credential, train and mobilize volunteers during a health-related emergency or event. The DPH has set goals to market MA Responds and recruit Mental Health professionals to become volunteers in Massachusetts.
MA Responds has contacted MaMHCA and would welcome LMHCs into their network. For more detailed information, please download the brochure and visit the MA Responds website. Please note that one of the units involved in MA Responds is the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health, Behavioral Health Disaster Responders.
