What is Bridging?
Peer Bridging provides and cultivates hope for people in psychiatric facilities. Using their own lived experience as your peer, the Bridger helps others with transitioning back into the community and connecting with the essential resources desired. The Bridger provides advocacy when requested and provides individual support to any person within the hospital who requests the service. They not only support you while your in the hospital, but will continue the support after discharge from the hospital. This service is available upon request in different hospitals and at the Kiva Center.
If you or someone you know within the Central Massachusetts area have questions or would like to connect with this service call us (508) 751-9600.
