Creating the Space to Lead: A Thoughtful and Practical Approach to Leadership

The Massachusetts Leadership Academy is offered by the Transformation Center and funded by the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership (MBHP). MLA is a 3-day program where we gather to develop our personal leadership skills, learn about the mental health movement, and learn how to advocate for change through the power of peer support.

This year we will explore how to develop mindful leadership. This program continues to develop new leaders who bring their energy to mental health systems and peer support environments with specific attention to expanding access to mental health recovery within multicultural settings. To achieve this end, emerging leaders must become familiar with the peer support landscape in Massachusetts, assess their own personal energy and commitment to taking action, and understand the role of leadership to facilitate mental health/dual recovery activities and to proactively ensure that these environments are welcoming and inclusive.
