Are you an advocacy veteran? We need your experience, guidance, and mentorship. Are you new to advocacy and aren't sure where to start? We provide introductory, as well as ongoing training and support.

ARISE is an advocacy program focused on developing and sustaining mental health peer leadership to create policy change at the local, state, and national level. If you're interested in mental health advocacy opportunities in the Bay Area, attend one of our meetings. We are currently meeting virtually on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month at 2 PM (PDT).
