Support Groups: Men's Health Begins by Talking

Since 1993, the MRC has been providing support groups for men to discuss their lives in a safe, confidential environment.  We offer weekly drop-in groups facilitated by trained volunteers.

Fathering Programs

The MRC has coordinated quarterly programs for family providers in the western region of Massachusetts who wish to improve their skills working with fathers. We have also presented workshops for parents and teachers which focus on raising and educating young boys, and designed workshops that encourage families to explore ways to share parenting responsibilities and challenge men to become more involved fathers and/or mentors for boys and girls. As part of our ongoing strategic planning for the future, we expect to develop new programs to support fathers and fathering.

Contact us if you want to know more about these programs as they develop.
