The mission of Community Action Marin’s Mental Health Program is to provide an atmosphere of warmth and caring that will give the best opportunities for those with mental illness to reach their highest potential. The Mental Health Program is committed to teaching, empowering, and advocating for our clients.
A variety of programs
Mental Health services are being free of charge to those with a mental illness and to their family members and friends. Each day we work to help teach people about their illness or recent diagnosis. We educate parents, family members and friends about mental illness so that they will be better able to help their loved ones.
All services are provided by trained Mental Health Peer Counselors. Our activities range from working with individuals and families as peer case managers to helping people through times of crises. We accept referrals from a variety of sources, including calls directly from clients, family members, friends, law enforcement officers, community agencies, therapists and physicians.
