The Mental Health Association of San Francisco is a peer-led social justice community dedicated to progressive mental health issues for the past 70 years.
The mission of the Mental Health Association of San Francisco is to cultivate peer leadership, build community, and advance social justice in mental health.
For 70 years, MHASF has reflected the forward-thinking vision San Francisco is known for. We fought stigma and discrimination in mental health across diverse communities and changed policy, perception, and ultimately people. Looking ahead, as a peer-run organization, we know that systems change comes when those affected by the 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 is at the forefront.
