From the desk of Sarah Selkovits:
Hi, exciting news has happened! The MBRLC/ Peer Education Resource Center has moved to Fields Corner 1500 Dorchester Ave. lower level, Dorchester, MA 02122. We focus on employment, wellness, and recovery. Currently we are teaching Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) and Whole Health Action Management (WHAM), two 10-week workshops at this site. The next workshops (WHAM and WRAP) will start the second week in June. See attached tri-fold for information and exact dates. These workshops offer techniques to support others though your personal experience. By helping others you will learn the meaning of peer support. There is a requirement to attend workshops; see attached flyers. The workshop style also gives you the opportunity to work with others who share similar life experiences. Please call to 617-788-1034 to register for the free upcoming classes.
Peer Education Resource Center is now open four days a week. Tuesday 1-5 Wednesday 1-5 Thursday 1-5 and Saturday 10-3. Please feel free to request activities for us to participate in at the PERC.
Please check out our brochures as we've added a lot of new groups.
Call before you plan to stop by; this would be greatly appreciated.

A message from Mary Broderick, Peer Support Worker at PERC:
Some come here as a step towards moving outside of the home and into the community. We provide a place to go and a chance to socialize if you want. We have computers you can use for free and without a time limit. We also teach basic computer skills (Thursdays or by appointment). We also offer classes on aspects of Employment starting from the decision whether to work or not, going on to issues that come up during employment. We have workshops and support groups in Mental Health. All of the current groups are on a drop-in basis. But whether you come for a class or to use the computer or to socialize, we would love to see you. We ask you to call before stopping by if you can. We look forward to seeing you!
