    INTERFACE Winchester Q&A


    What is INTERFACE Referral Service?


    INTERFACE HELPLINE 888-244-6843 is available to Winchester residents and students.


    The INTERFACE Helpline, which is open Monday-Friday between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, assists callers by providing therapeutic matches to licensed, vetted outpatient mental health providers with timely openings. Therapeutic matches are made to a caller’s specific needs, insurance type, and location.


    In addition to the helpline, INTERFACE Referral Service maintains an extensive website covering mental health related topics complete with articles, book recommendations and resources both locally and nationally. The website also has many guides to help callers navigate the mental health system, ranging from an article on how to determine your health insurance benefits to what questions you can ask when interviewing a potential therapist.


    The youth Mental Health First Aid course is primarily intended for adults to learn how to help young people experiencing mental health challenges or crises.
