About the SERLC

The Southeast RLC has 6 RCC's: Fall River, New Bedford, Taunton Brockton, Hyannis and Plymouth. Boston Medical Center (Joan Taglieri) was awarded the DMH contract in 2012; the contract is monitored by Daniel Fisher. Funds are used to partner with Teresa Belsom of BAMSI, Sharon Silvia of Child and Family Services and Chuck Tuplin of Vinfen. These following partners employ staff with lived mental health or co-occurring experiences. These individuals lead non-clinical peer support groups, fun activities and community events.

Groups are not only led in boardrooms; they are also held at coffee shops, shopping malls, elderly communities, multi-cultural communities, in-patient, out-patient, partial treatment, crisis stabilization, and libraries. We also facilitate meetings of NAMI Connections.

Coming soon:Hearing Voices Network meetings.
