Our Approach

What can you do if someone in your family is struggling?  Is it beyond the capacity for the family to deal with these strange new feelings and behaviors?  Is the only choice to seek medical intervention?

We are a collaboration of psychiatric Survivors And Families Empowered by our conviction that by working together we can create the supports and tools needed to meet an ever increasing number of serious problems that we encounter today.

We launch this website to challenge a mental health service system that too often does more harm than good with its absolute reliance on models of care and treatment based on faulty archaic principles.

“Nothing about us without us” is our experience-based model that is validated by our seeing in our lives what is possible.
