The wait is over! Our summer issue of the VOICE is ready for your viewing pleasure.
Read about how Melissa found her role to help others through peer support. She learned firsthand how peer support can make all the difference in a person’s recovery. Two years ago, Melissa finally felt ready to begin her job search after not being employed for many years. Through the support of Vinfen, she realized that helping others with psychiatric conditions would be a great job for her. Recently, the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health has replaced Community Based Flexible Supports with a new model, Adult Community Clinical Services (ACCS). ACCS places a greater emphasis on peer support like Melissa received and offers others support in their recovery journeys.
You will also learn about several other individuals working toward their dreams and gaining skills and friendships through employment. People like Daniel, who wants to become a baker and own his own bakery. With the support of Vinfen, he is perfecting his baked good recipes. Daniel also started a job at Wegmans where he works as a dishwasher. Due to his strong work ethic, he might pick up shifts at the grocery’s bakery department.
Last but not least, stayed informed with Vinfen’s upcoming events.
