We envision a world where people can freely choose among many mental health options that address the needs of the whole person. We see a future where people with mental health experiences are valued for their essential contributions to society.
Wellness Recovery Action Plan® or WRAP® is an evidence-based practice used worldwide by people dealing with mental health or general health challenges.
Black Wellness & Resilience (BWR) Campaign is focused on providing culturally relevant services and resources to the Black community to reduce internal and external stigma. As people of color, it is critical that we learn to respond to the daily stressors associated with racism, discrimination, and other forms of systematic oppression effectively and strategically. We address internal stigma by providing a safe space for members to identify mental health concerns, learn tools to address traumatic experiences, and gain knowledge of how to identify and eliminate self-stigma.
Lift Every Voice and Speak (LEVS) is our Speakers Bureau. We offer members opportunities to live, love, grow, educate and heal through telling personal stories in a warm, engaging, and supportive environment.
Everyone Counts Campaign will be focusing on the Latino/a/x community. We will be making efforts to reduce stigma and discrimination within our communities and creating cultural inclusiveness. Stigma is often a barrier for people to seek treatment and share their experiences. For this reason, the Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services Everyone Counts Campaign through PEERS focuses on the strengths and wellness of people.
Healing Arts offers a safe space for participants to explore mental health and wellness through art. Art facilitates healing and recovery by allowing group members to express difficult emotions through various mediums.
