The Freedom Center's Peer Support Group

Submitted by shana on Sun, 09/21/2014 - 16:32


Right now a small group of core organizers intends to offer more support groups in Northampton in the future. We don't have the resources at the moment to make this viable, and so we are focusing on resources and networking at the moment and hope to offer a monthly support group when all the preparations are in place . Please be in touch if you are interested in Freedom Center community events, volunteering, or otherwise helping.

If you are looking for local recovery and peer movement resources in general rather than the Freedom Center specifically, we recommend that you first contact the Recovery Learning Community. Thanks!

The Freedom Center is transforming! Please see our update post for info.

The Freedom Center is a support and activism community run by and for people labeled with severe 'mental disorders.' We call for compassion, human rights, self-determination, and holistic options. We create alternatives to the mental health system's widespread despair, abuse, fraudulent science and dangerous treatments. We are based in pro-choice harm reduction philosophy regarding medical treatments, and include people taking or not talking medications.
