Mass. U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins sits down with Malden Behavioral Health clinicians

Members of Greater Malden Behavioral Health, Inc. met with U.S. Attorney General for the District of Massachusetts Rachael Rollins last Friday afternoon. The clinic mostly serves young adults and seniors. They work in the greater Boston area, providing on-site and in-home therapy through Zoom. Their primary offices are in Boston and the greater Malden area, and they have a waitlist.

Rollins said the largest issue currently is white supremacy, spurred by domestic terrorism and the mass killing string of incidents. They discussed an uptick in gang violence and the opioid crisis and how to best address that collectively.

Rollins is the first woman to hold the office of Suffolk County District Attorney “and the first woman of color to serve as DA in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Rollins is now the first Black woman to ever serve as U.S. Attorney in the District of Massachusetts,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
