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
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
continued to grow in number. Today they number ten with
the major themes being our drop-in center, outreach
programs, telephone counseling,
education, peer case management, and employment.
The mission of Community Action Marin's
Mental Health Programs is to provide
of warmth and caring that will give the best
opportunities for those with mental illness to reach
their highest potential. The Mental
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
and families as peer case managers
to helping people through times of crises.
to us can be made through a variety of ways including
calls directly from clients, family members, friends,
enforcement officers, community agencies,
therapists and physicians.
