Our mission is to help people manage life’s challenges.
Milford regional Counseling Services is a small, local, non-profit organization founded in 1984 by Dot Colson, a New Hampshire pioneer in the mental health field, who believed that all people should have access to affordable mental health care in their area.

We primarily serve people who live in the towns of Milford, Amherst, Mont Vernon, Wilton, Brookline, Lyndeborough, Hollis, New Boston, Merrimack, Bedford, Temple, Greenville, Francestown, Mason, Greenfield, New Ipswich, and Peterborough.We rely on the support of local town, grants, and generous individual donations to continue to offer our Milford Area Affordable Counseling Program.
