Afiya (a part of the Wildflower Alliance) is the first peer respite in Massachusetts (and one of only about 18 in the country).  Based in Northampton, Afiya offers a homelike environment where people can stay for up to seven days as an alternative to hospitalization.

Centered around peer-to-peer support, the focus is on providing a safe space in which each person can find the balance and support needed to turn what is so often referred to as a ‘crisis’ into a learning and growth opportunity.
