The Cole Resource Center is a small nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people affected by mental health challenges lead full and healthy lives. The Center’s individual referral services, support groups, and public programs forge effective connections through the compassion and understanding of its staff, all of whom have lived experience with mental illness. The guidance offered is invaluable for individuals and families navigating the challenging transitions that are part of mental health care. The Cole Resource Center has its offices in Belmont, on the campus of McLean Hospital. CRC offered the Mental Health First Aid course at First Parish last January. https://www.
