Replanting Lives

Replanting Lives” is a support group that meets twice a month, the 2nd Tuesday morning (10:30-noon at the Gleason Public Library in Carlisle MA) and second  Wednesday evening (7-8:30pm at the Bedford COA at 12 Mudge Way), based on the book, “Replanting Lives Uprooted by Mental Illness: A Practical Guide for Families,” by Nancy Pizzo Boucher.

Directions to the Gleason Public Library in Carlisle are easy since it is right on Route 225 in Carlisle! Directions to the Bedford Council on Aging: take Great Road to Elm Street. At the stop sign (School Way), go right and then left (there is a sign showing the COA is to the left). There is a large parking area. When you walk in the building, go straight! You are there! Any questions, feel free to call 781-405-8376 for assistance.

Each FREE session is conducted by Mara Briere, MA, CFLE and a co-facilitator, and offers:

  • networking
  • skills
  • concrete tools
  • strategies
  • resources

Participants become better equipped to manage the changes in the family since a loved one has been diagnosed with a mental illness/behavioral health disorder.

Replanting Lives” is a safe space where participants receive insight and feedback in order to help practice new behaviors that enhance their lives and relationships, and support the recovery of their loved ones.  It offers family members the strength and resilience that replanting from life’s difficulties is a process, of which the group can be a part.
