Thank you for visiting the Medically Induced Trauma Support Services (MITSS) website. Many of MITSS’ services and resources are now being administered by the Betsy Lehman Center for Patient Safety.
MITSS founder, Linda Kenney, is the Director of Peer Support Programs at the Betsy Lehman Center, where she is building a network of trained peer supporters in Massachusetts to help patients and families who are impacted by medical errors and unanticipated outcomes. A new pilot program will also help health care facilities in Massachusetts implement support programs for clinicians and staff involved in adverse events. Use the links below to learn more:
Additional resources from MITSS will be migrated over to the Betsy Lehman Center website in the coming months.
If you have any additional questions, please email PeerSupport@state.ma.us or call 617-701-8271.
On behalf of Linda Kenney and the patients, families and clinicians we have worked with over the years – thank you for your support!
