For many people in crisis, connecting with another person with shared lived experience can be a vital factor on the journey to mental health recovery. That connection is available at the Living Room, a welcoming space where people experiencing emotional distress can walk in and connect with a peer specialist on the spot.
The Living Room program provides a 24-hour crisis alternative to emergency department visits and hospitalization. Located in Framingham, The Living Room is the only program of its kind accessible to people in the MetroWest and greater Boston areas.
How We Help
- Flexible and compassionate care
- Connections to a variety of recovery resources
- Assistance with housing and employment

What to Expect
The Living Room creates an experience that is entirely voluntary and focused on respect, mutuality, and trust. An assessment will be replaced with a chance to tell your story and what’s happening for you in the moment. Your initial interaction is with a peer specialist, along with all of your subsequent conversations, activities, and support during your visit.
Who can visit The Living Room?
We welcome any adult 18 and older having difficulty with a variety of issues related to emotional distress. You do not need a referral to visit our comfortable, home-like location.
