Mission, Vision, and Values

Survivors And Families Empowered (SAFE) is a coalition of psychiatric survivors, families, and mental health professionals who believe in the power of hope and the resilience of the human spirit.

Our Mission 

To develop and nurture the strengths of families and individuals to understand and work through the emotional struggles that are too easily designated a serious mental illness which can only be helped by health professionals. 

Our experiences have taught us that deconstructing the fears and myths about mental illness will reduce the over reliance on restrictive interventions which interfere with recovery.

Our values include:

  • Honoring Autonomy & Dignity
  • Safety for All
  • Healthy Relationships
