A Century of Service In and We’re Just Getting Started
Since 1920, Greater Nashua Mental Health has been providing vital community services to residents and families in the greater Nashua region. Our mission: empowering people to lead full and satisfying lives through effective treatment and support.
In over 100 years since we first opened our doors, we’ve seen a lot of progress – and the results can be seen in all that we’ve accomplished to aid our community, and where we stand today as it relates to providing mental health services to our neighbors in need.

The Greater Nashua Mental Health is committed to staying abreast of the emerging research and evidence-based treatments and has launched integrated treatment options in close partnership with other area healthcare professionals in our community.
If we are going to be successful in meeting the demands of the 21st century, we must adapt and change our practices to meet the emerging challenges. One of our greatest challenges, however, will be to move a system of regulations and reimbursement for care that was created back in the 20th century to support the new advancements in care. Not all change moves at the same pace but there is movement and there is hope on the horizon.
