Mental Health America of Northern California is dedicated to improve the lives of residents in the diverse communities of Northern California through advocacy, education, research, and culturally relevant services. In all of its programs, MHANCA works with individuals and families with mental health challenges to promote wellness and recovery, prevention, and improved access to services and support.
MHANCA staff strive to provide peer services that foster recovery, reduce stigma and discrimination, and improve cultural competency through self-help, education, and culturally relevant research.
Give us a few hours a week or more. Tasks are varied and satisfaction is guaranteed. Work with clients, groups or help us with administration. We promise a new experience and new friendships.
Remember . . . mental health is contagious, mental illness is not!
