Our Goals: Building Bridges and Breaking Barriers
Building Bridges
  • Connecting individuals and communities: NAMI Massachusetts works to alleviate stigma and connect individuals affected by mental health conditions with each other, their families, and support networks. Building bridges symbolizes forging these connections and fostering understanding across different demographics and experiences.
  • Collaborating for impact: Mental health advocacy and support require collaboration. Bridges represent partnerships between NAMI Mass, healthcare providers, policymakers, and other stakeholders to create a strong foundation for systemic change.
  • Overcoming isolation and loneliness: Mental illness can lead to feelings of isolation and disconnection. Building bridges emphasizes creating pathways for individuals to rejoin their communities and feel included.
Breaking Barriers
  • Removing stigma and discrimination: One of NAMI Mass’ core missions is to break down the stigma surrounding mental illness. This translates to dismantling societal barriers that hinder access to care, employment, and equal opportunities.
  • Challenging systemic inequalities: Access to mental health resources and support can be unequally distributed due to factors like race, income, and geographic location. Breaking barriers signifies tackling these inequalities and ensuring equitable access for all.
  • Empowering individuals to advocate for themselves: NAMI Mass empowers individuals with mental illness to become their own advocates. Breaking barriers symbolizes breaking free from self-doubt and fear, and confidently navigating the system to access proper care and support.

Overall, the theme “Building Bridges and Breaking Barriers” emphasizes NAMI Mass’ commitment to fostering connection, collaboration, and societal change to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for individuals and families affected by mental illness.

Transportation and Parking

The Substation is located at 4228 Washington Street, at the corner of Cummins Hwy, opposite Adams Park. Our main entrance is up the stairs on the right side of the building.

A second and accessible entrance is located through the back of the building down the ramp that is opposite the U.S. Post Office on Cummins Hwy.


There’s a BlueBikes station directly outside our building.


If you come by your own bicycle, lock it up at one of the lollipop bike racks in front of our building as well as at other locations around Adams Park.


We are easily accessible via public transportation. There are nine bus lines (14, 30, 34, 34E, 35, 36, 37, 40, 50, 51) that run through Roslindale Village, most of which terminate at Forest Hills. The Roslindale Commuter Rail Station is also only a block and a half away.


We hope you’ll come to us by foot, bike, or public transit but we know that traveling by car is necessary at times. Roslindale Village has ample public parking on the street and in the 90 space Taft Hill Municipal Lot, which is just across Adams Park, next to the Roslindale Health Center. Be aware that much public parking has a posted two-hour limit. Parking is also available for a fee at the MBTA Commuter Rail lots just the other side of Roslindale Square.
