A message from Denise Clarke, Peer Support Worker at PERC:
Over the last 8 weeks I have facilitated a peer group on Assertiveness. This has been incredibly helpful not only to my fellow peers but also to me. Learning about communication styles has helped me to become less passive and become more assertive. The group has learned to encourage each other to find the happy medium of assertive vs aggressive communication vs passive communication. In the group we often do role plays which really help to illustrate how we communicate and how we can communicate better. Finally Assertiveness for Peers is not only educational it is FUN. So join us on Wednesday at the Hope Center at 1:30!
A message from Mary Broderick, Peer Support Worker at PERC:
One thing we do at Peer Education Resource Center (PERC) Metro Boston Recovery Learning Community (MBRLC) is serve as a place for people to drop into and spend time. We accept anyone over the age of eighteen who self-identifies as having a Mental Health challenge or Substance Dependency (a Peer). PERC is run by and for Peers. No referral is needed to come here.
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!
