The NAMI GB CAN (Consumer Affiliate/Advocacy Network) has an office at the Boston Resource Center. For information on this organization and meeting schedule, see http://www.namigbcan.org.
The Boston Resource Center located at the Boston Medical Center is
staffed by volunteers and a few paid staff. The vast majority of our
staff are in recovery from psychiatric conditions and/or substance
abuse. Our main service is having people with lived experience provide
peer to peer services. We believe that people who have themselves
experiences psychiatric conditions understand best what it is like to
learn to live with issues and how to recover. We are here to help
others as they come to use the Resource Center.
The Resource Center offers brochures, books, audio, and videotapes, professional articles, and friendly help from people who have faced psychiatric conditions themselves (or as family members/close friends). Whether you are concerned about your own psychiatric condition or that of a family member, friend, employee, member of your congregation, patient, or other person in your life, the Resource Center is a place you can turn to. We are doing our best to staff with multilingual, multicultural members and to offer our resources in multiple languages. Feel free to call and request that we have someone available to assist in the language in which you are comfortable, we will do our best to accommodate (we may need a day or even two at this time in order to make arrangements to serve people in languages, but we will do our best).
Activities visitors/guests may engage in include: gym access, arts & crafts, creative writing, support groups and games.
