Presenter: Keith Scott

Webinar Description:

For many people in crisis, connecting with another person with shared lived experience can be a vital factor on the journey to mental health and addiction recovery. That connection is available at The Living Room hosted by Advocates, a welcoming space where people experiencing emotional distress can walk in and connect with a peer specialist on the spot.

The Living Room in Framingham, Massachusetts provides a 24-hour crisis response. No referral is necessary to visit this comfortable, home-like location, staffed entirely by trained, certified peer specialists. The Living Room creates an experience that is entirely voluntary and focused on respect, mutuality, and trust.

In this webinar, Keith Scott will describe the Living Room model and how it can be a valuable source of support during a mental health crisis.
