HISTORY:

 

Community Action Marin's Mental Health programs began 
with the "Enterprise Resource Center" program.
The peer run facility day drop-in center had been serving 
Marin County since the 1980's and began a partnership with 
Community Action Marin more than twenty years ago.
Fifteen years ago the Mental Health Department added its
second program, "Mental Health Outreach."  From that point
in time to the present our Mental Health Programs have
continued to grow in number.  Today they number ten with
the major themes being our drop-in center, outreach 
programs, telephone counseling, companion programs,
education, peer case management, and employment.    

 

MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of Community Action Marin's
Mental Health Programs 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.

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.  Referrals
to us can be made through a variety of ways including
calls directly from clients, family members, friends,
law enforcement officers, community agencies,
therapists and physicians.
