Organizer CAMHPRO

Organizer of Central Valley Regional Empowerment Networking Forum

CAMHPRO, founded in 2012, is a 501(c)3 non-profit incorporated consumer-run statewide organization consisting of member entities, which are established, independent and successful consumer-run organizations, and individual consumer members.

CAMHPRO’s mission is: “to transform communities and the mental health system throughout California to empower, support, and ensure the rights of consumers, eliminate stigma, and advance self-determination for all those affected by mental health issues by championing the work of consumers and consumer-run organizations.”

The specific purpose of CAMHPRO is to promote the work and mission of peer run organizations devoted to advocacy and empowerment for mental health consumers.

Consumers Self Help was founded in 1986 when a group of Consumers banded together to advocate for a Consumer Run Program.  They received a small grant of $20,000 from the County Board of Supervisors to start their program.

At first, the program rented meeting rooms at Churches and other non-profit organizations.  In 1989 Consumers Self Help became a private non-profit organization and by 1995 the organization was expanded to three separate programs, the South Center, North Center and The Office for Patients’ Rights for Sacramento County. The contract for the Wellness & Recovery Center under the Mental Health Services Act was awarded to Consumers Self Help in April 2007. In January 2008, Consumers Self Help obtained the contract to provide Patients' Rights services to clients in Yolo County.
