Therapeutic Mentoring (TM)

Therapeutic mentoring (TM) services help children or teens under the age of 21 with their daily living, social and communication needs.

These services help children and teens learn new skills, make functional progress and succeed in social situations. TM services provide supervision, support, coaching and training in:

  • Age-appropriate behaviors
  • Interpersonal communication
  • Functional skill building
  • Problem-solving and conflict resolution
  • Interaction with other children or teens, and adults

Therapeutic mentoring services are hub-dependent, meaning they require referral from a clinical-hub provider—an outpatient, in-home therapy or intensive care coordination provider—who coordinates the child's or teen’s care and works with other service providers.

TM services do not require prior authorization. A TM provider can call us at 888-257-1985 (TTY: 711) Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm for more information.

To find a TM provider in your area go to: Massachusetts Behavioral Health Access (MABHA)
