Crisis Support Available for People Impacted by Earthquake in Nepal

May 7, 2015

The devastating earthquake in Nepal has impacted families around the world, including the Greater Boston Nepali community.

Cambridge Health Alliance’s Victims of Violence Program is offering crisis intervention services to people impacted by the Nepal earthquake.

Services may include one-time meetings or a series of meetings depending upon the individual need. Psycho-education about the impact of traumatic events, mindfulness, and self-soothing practices are taught. Resource and treatment referrals are also made as needed.

Who can participate? 

Services are available to people impacted by the earthquake who live in:

  • Cambridge
  • Chelsea
  • Everett
  • Malden
  • Revere
  • Somerville
  • Winthrop

You do not need to be a CHA patient to receive crisis intervention services. However, the sessions are considered medical appointments and require insurance or other forms of payment.
