The Dominican Life Center
Mental Health Services

A team of three mental health professionals contracted from Chelsea Community Hospital provides confidential, on-site support to Dominican Life Center residents as they deal with emotional illness and aspects of aging and health. The team is available four days a week. Helen Kelley is a psychiatric nurse therapist, Lissa Perrin is a psychiatric clinical social worker, and Dr. Frank Colligan is a psychiatrist. They provide treatment and a compassionate, listening presence for residents as they cope with:

mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder
grief issues
evaluation and treatment of age-related memory loss and dementia
life changes and transitions

In addition to seeing residents, the team offers presentations on various mental health topics and provides consultation and resource information to DLC residents and staff regarding strategies for dealing with emotional responses, memory difficulties, chemical dependency and eating disorders.
