Since 1994 the Coalition has brought together concerned citizens as well as professionals who live or work in Needham for the following purposes:
We are a non-profit group that meets monthly in the Needham community to discuss current issues of concern, create strategies for advocacy and education, and join with our colleagues to combat the stigma of mental health and mental retardation in the Needham community. We serve as liaisons to many town committees where we represent those individuals who might otherwise have no voice.
Monthly Brown Bag Lunch Meetings: Third Friday, 12:00pm-1:30pm. Next meeting: Friday, March 21 at Charles River Industries. For current programming, please call Bonnie Engelhardt, LICSW 444-7405
