This 12 minute video about the Western Massachusetts Recovery Learning Community (RLC) introduces viewers to the RLC philosophy and provides a window into that community in all its diversity and vibrancy! The Western Mass RLC supports individuals who have lived experience with trauma, extreme emotional states and/or mental health diagnoses in finding their own paths to recovery by offering trauma-sensitive peer supports and through the development of a regional peer network. The RLC operates under the umbrella of the Western Massachusetts Training Consortium (The Consortium) and is primarily funded through the Department of Mental Health (DMH). It offers a variety of supports, trainings, workshops and connections throughout the region, including at its four Resource Connection Centers (Holyoke, Springfield, Pittsfield, Greenfield). It is one of six RLCs across the state. For more information please contact the RLC's main center at (413) 539-5941, toll-free at (866) 641-2853, or for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, by video phone at (413) 650-5380 or (866) 674-8728 (Please note that there is no answering machine for the video phone, but missed calls are recorded and wil be returned on Tuesdays!)
