Voices for Change

An occasional 10-page newsletter of The Transformation Center giving voice to people in Massachusetts with lived experiences of mental health diagnosis, trauma, substance use issues and/or extreme states.

“Senior Americans and Mental Health”   Winter 2016  






“Voices for Change” includes stories from the many cultural communities within our mental health           community and news from The Transformation Center.  Volunteers with lived experience of recovery contribute and edit articles, proofread, do research and interview each other.  We occasionally take artwork or a poem.  We also have a quarterly mailing party – this is the only activity for which we pay workers.

Do you want to get experience with writing, editing, advocacy or communication?

“Voices for Change” is a community effort.  We want you to be a part of it.
Please send comments and questions to the editor of “Voices for Change”
