Our mission is to cultivate peer leadership, build community, and advance social justice in mental health
For over 70 years, MHASF has reflected the forward-thinking San Francisco is known for. We fought stigma and discrimination in mental health across diverse communities and changed policy, perception, and people. As a peer-run organization, we know change takes place when those affected by issues are centered in the solutions. Mental health care is changing rapidly, and a more integrated, holistic approach is the expectation for the future, peer workers are at the center of the next evolution of the mental health system, and MHASF aspires to continue to be at the forefront.
