Community Bridgers

We are Community Bridgers

Are you in transition? We are here to help you.

First and foremost, we are your peers. We have lived experience with mental health issues and have been in transition before, whether being discharged from the hospital, jail, or other situations. We know what sort of difficulties you'll face in the coming weeks.

The health care system can be confusing.As your Community Bridger, we will support you on a one-to-one and group basis. We will maintain this relationship after your discharge, helping you face difficult situations and finding supports so your transition runs more smoothly.

Best of all, this service is absolutely free!

Contact your support team to learn more, or call us at (617) 305-9985.
