Community support for individuals in recovery from mental health challenges. Contact us today to learn more.
Waverley Place is a community-based support program that provides a recovery-oriented environment for adults facing mental health challenges.
Our program supports adults who may experience changes in thinking and concentration, have difficulties with hearing, seeing, or sensing things that others don’t, or struggle with mood and anxiety disorders.
Located a half-mile from McLean’s Belmont campus, Waverley Place offers a unique, non-clinical model of recovery in a warm and welcoming environment.
Here, members can build connections and supports, as well as independence and self-reliance. We emphasize empowerment and self-determination, helping members to decide for themselves how they want to use the program.
Support and Services
Waverley Place provides community-based support ranging from group sessions on crucial topics to a comfortable and safe space to engage with other individuals in recovery.
Community members determine which services they engage in and how often they participate. Daily activities include open discussion, groups, workshops, classes, and the opportunity for members to facilitate or co-facilitate groups.
The weekly schedule includes group sessions focused on topics such as interpersonal skills, independent living, spirituality, finding meaningful work, and living a full life as defined by each individual.
Shared activities include board games, art, writing, music, gardening, cooking, and cognitive games. Waverley Place also offers fitness groups, including yoga, meditation, stretching, group walks, and trips to the gym.
At Waverley Place, we understand that support and access to resources are crucial to sustained recovery. With this in mind, our staff helps members establish and carry out personal goals.
Mutual peer support from community members helps individuals engage in meaningful activities and roles. We provide many opportunities to have conversations about stigma, discrimination, self-stigma, advocacy, and empowerment.
