Bilingual and Bicultural Services

We have over 60 licensed behavioral health specialists to meet your needs.  Our providers reflect the diversity of our community and speak a number of languages, including Spanish, Khmer, Russian, and Arabic.

Integrated Care Services

Lynn Community Health Center has placed special emphasis on the coordination of primary care and behavioral health services for those who need them.  

If you are a primary care patient at Lynn Community Health Center, you can request behavioral health services through your primary care physician or nurse.  He or she will introduce you to someone who can help you.  You do not have to go to a different place or call a different phone number to make an appointment.  You can receive both your medical and behavioral health care in one location


Everyone is welcome at Lynn Community Health Center.  We accept most forms of public and private health insurance.  If you do not have insurance, we have staff who can help you determine if you qualify for assistance, and help you enroll in the program that best fits your needs.

You will never be turned away because of inability to pay.
