Cape Cod Mental Health Center Closes

Advocates for people who need mental health treatment on Cape Cod say they’re concerned about some patients following the abrupt closure of the Mashpee Mental Health Center.

A recorded message said Thursday the center’s phone number was not accepting calls. Its website provided no information on its status.

The center’s president did not return a call for comment from the Cape Cod Times.

Karen Gardner, chief executive of the Community Health Center of Cape Cod, said her facility has been getting calls from patients left in the lurch by the Mashpee facility.

Ron Holmes, executive director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness Cape Cod and the Islands, said it can be disconcerting to people seeking mental health treatment to have their health care provider be unexpectedly unavailable.
