About Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee

The Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee provides comprehensive information and advice to individuals involved with the Massachusetts mental health system through the MHLAC Intake Line. To have a legal advocate contact you regarding an intake matter, you must call the MHLAC Intake Line and leave a voice mail message. We do not conduct intakes on a walk-in basis.


You can leave a voicemail message 24 hours/7 days a week on the MHLAC Intake Line or email Intake@mhlac.org. Please note however that Intake Staff will return these calls during regular office hours, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

You can call the MHLAC Intake Line by dialing 617-338-2345, then press 4 or toll free 1-800-342-9092, then press 4. You will hear the following menu:

If you are a legislator or legislative staffer, courthouse employee, social or legal services provider, or consumer advocate, press 1.

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
