The Metro Boston Recovery Learning Community (MBRLC) is an entirely peer-run organization dedicated to providing support, education and advocacy by providing opportunities and resources for individuals in finding their own path to mental health recovery.
The MBRLC operates four peer-run centers: The Boston Resource Center (BRC) at Boston Medical Center, the Cambridge/Somerville Recovery Learning Center (CSRLC), the Peer Education Resource Center (PERC) and the newest center the Hope Center located at the Lindemann Center near North Station. All centers have different hours and different offerings and all can be found online at www.MetroBostonRLC.org
The Hope Center has recently increased and changed a number of groups. For details, see www.HopeRLC.org or call (617) 626-8694. Download our Hope Center Brochure. Highlights include Community Meeting from 11:15-12noon on Tuesdays, and NAMI Connection Support Group from 1:15pm-2:45pm. WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) classes forming soon, call 617-788-1034 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Hope Center also hosts the offices of NAMI Greater Boston Consumer Advocacy Network (NAMI GB CAN).
