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. Dorchester MA 02122. We are on the lower level of the former Kit Clark Senior Center. We will be teaching Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) and Whole Health Action Management (WHAM), two 10-week workshops at this site on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Please see updated flyer for times. These workshops are a way to get Peer Support training and experience as they offer techniques to support others though your personal experience.There is a requirement to attend at least 8 classes out of 10 so that you can obtain work helping others. The workshop style also gives you the opportunity to work with others who share your similar life experience. Please call to 617-788-1034 to register for the free up coming classes.

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!
