The Transformation Center’s 2017 Massachusetts Leadership Academy is dedicated to providing, perpetuating and promoting LGBT2SQQIA leadership in the Mental Health Recovery Movement.

This will be a 3-day training retreat funded by Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership.  It will be held in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and will include topics on advocacy, personal leadership and how we connect with our communities to support one another. Our goal is to actively encourage validation of LGBT2SQQIA identity as a key part of recovery, resilience and self-determination.
