Over 40 Years of Service to the Mental Health Community

MaMHCA: Massachusetts Mental Health Counselors Association


Loan Repayment Program

In a recent Newsletter MaMHCA wrote about SAMSHA releasing increased funds to states to attract and keep health care clinicians. These funds have arrived in Massachusetts!

In exchange for working in an underserved community* for two years, a range of licensed health care clinicians – including LMHCs – can get up to $60,000 that can be used to repay student loans!

The program is housed under the MA Department of Mental Health (DPH). Information and forms can be found on the DPH website or through the Primary care Office at DPH:
Telephone: (617) 624-6060.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, and reviewed twice yearly.
