About Us

The Boston Resource Center [ www.BostonResourceCenter.org ]is a mental health consumer and family peer education and recovery community dedicated to improving the lives of people living with psychiatric conditions and their families, friends, and other supporters. We are primarily staffed by people in recovery from mental health and/or addictions themselves. We are the lead partner of the Metro Boston Recovery Learning Community, www.MetroBostonRLC.org We provide hope to people diagnosed with mental illness and believe everyone has something to offer our community. We are especially strong at helping people with disabilities go back to work of their own choosing.

We feature a variety of support groups, fun groups, gym access, a library, social activities, computer instruction one on one and in group settings and entreprenuerial projects. We fund a warmline where peers can call peers for support, see www.warmline.org

Through our partners, we reach out to the wider community with an educational, anti-stigma, and awareness raising outreach program. The Resource Center is sponsored by NAMI GB CAN (Consumer Advocacy/Affiliate Network) www.namigbcan.org in partnership with the Boston Medical Center Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Mental Health Metro Boston Area Office. We are now part of the Metro Boston Recovery Learning Community www.metrobostonrlc.org
