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.

PLEASE NOTE: These resources and any others within the Central Mass RLC website are not intended as a recommendation of any of the websites or services listed, but are provided for informational purposes only. These resource listings intentionally focus more on alternatives to medical model approaches and ways of thinking, not because we are against more familiar and medical perspectives and approaches but because we are aware that many people aren’t provided the opportunity to explore alternatives. Often, information on less standard approaches can be very difficult to find. Ultimately, we support people in their efforts to be fully informed and to choose the path that is best for them.
