Our Mission

Founded as an umbrella organization for existing client-run mental health programs, we continue to serve as a central hub for six programs run by and for consumers of mental health services.  Our mission is to improve the quality of life of mental health clients within Alameda County by promoting freedom of choice, empowerment, and independent living within the community.  We accomplish this mission by supporting consumer-developed and run programs, advocating for a truly consumer responsive mental health system, and reflecting the diversity of the mental health community, prioritizing those who have been most underserved and stigmatized.
