Dozens oftherapists who were unlicensed or improperly supervised routinely treated mentally ill patients at three clinics owned by a major provider of care to low-income people in Massachusetts, state records show.
At an Arbour Health System clinic in Lawrence, state inspectors determined that all 23 therapists were not qualified to see patients on their own, yet were doing so without regular oversight by a licensed professional. Similar staffing violations were discovered at Arbour clinics in Malden and Fall River.
The findings last year, described in documents obtained by the Globe and filed as part of a lawsuit, highlight a two-tier system in which low income patients often are treated by mental health workers with less training and expertise than caregivers for privately insured patients.

Alone among the notable days in the year, there stands the summer solstice, in splendid, sun-drenched isolation. It starts Friday, the longest day of the year, when the sun (Latin “sol”) stands still (“sistere”) and shines for slightly over 15 hours.
Why no love for the summer solstice, a day when you can do whatever you like outdoors from dawn to dusk and then some?
The church calendar calls this season Ordinary Time. Are you kidding? No! Extraordinary time! You can take longer bike rides, and you can ignore Mom’s pleas to come indoors. The stifling July heat waves are still weeks away. Chase the ice cream truck, play stoop ball, go bird-watching, or go out to sea and stay there. Saturday morning is for sleeping in.
