Self Advocacy

Bristol Adult Resource Center (BARC) has a self advocacy group called “My Voice, My Choice” and was started by Denise Lyon, one of the individuals that BARC supports.

The group meets the last Wednesday of every month (except for July and August) and are held at Bristol Adult Resource Center (BARC) Jerome Avenue site. The meetings are held from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Some of the topics include: transportation, how to act professional at a job site, assertiveness, problem solving, healthy relationships and speaking up for yourself. Any suggestions of topics are welcome. We welcome new individuals to our group.

If you have any questions about the self-advocacy group, please contact Denise Lyon at or Chris Eaton at
