We consider education to be an extremely important part of our mission. To that end, we offer the following resources and links that may be of interest to both professional and lay members of the public. While we hope you find these resources helpful, please realize that they are for general informational purposes only, and are not intended to replace the need for consultation and treatment by physicians, mental health counselors, and/or other health care providers.

Over the  years, we have donated a selection of books to the Nantucket Atheneum and to the Saltmarsh Senior Center through a gift in honor of Nancy Adam, a previous Coordinator of Volunteers for our program. If you’d like to see what books were made available, choose the link below.
