About Mental Health Association of San Francisco


Story

MHASF is a mental health peer-run nonprofit organization located in downtown San Francisco and serving people and agencies across the Bay Area since 1947. Our mission is to cultivate peer leadership, build community, and advance social justice in mental health.

As mental health consumers ourselves, we center the lived expertise of people with mental health challenges in our advocacy, education, and support programs, and believe that dignity and recovery in mental health are something everyone can experience. Our growing staff of 50+ are dedicated to creating spaces for learning and healing around stigmatized and under-resourced areas in mental health—hoarding and cluttering behavior, suicide attempt survival, post-hospitalization peer support, community-based crisis response, and much more.

Our programs include:

  • The Peer Response Team, one-on-one peer support for hoarding & cluttering issues, holistic wellness, and general mental health
  • The Peer-Run Warm Line, non-crisis support and referrals via phone and instant messaging
  • SOLVE (Sharing Our Lives, Voices and Experiences), a community education speakers' bureau
  • PROPEL, a peer workforce and employer development program
  • Marin Peer Responders, wraparound peer support for crisis and post-crisis recovery in Marin County
  • Do Send a Card, a program delivering support cards and comfort items to those in psychiatric wards
  • More innovative and in-demand programs under development!

We work hard to create an office culture of camaraderie, community care, and supportive learning. MHASF strongly encourages people with lived experience of mental health challenges to apply and grow with us!
