Mad Mob SF (Mental Health Consumers Working Group)

Join the Mad Mob!

SDA has started a new group of mental health consumers organizing for our rights, dignity, and access to services. If you have or have had a mental health disability or identify as a consumer and are interested in working together to improve the mental health system, come join us!

We meet on the second and fourth Fridays of the month at the SDA office (1360 Mission St., Suite 400) from 2:00-3:30pm. Contact Raia to get involved at (415) 546-1333, ext. 308 or raia@sdaction.org.

CONSERVATORSHIP / SB 1045

SB 1045 is a bill that passed at the state level to expand conservatorship law to include substance abuse and to expand the criteria for losing one’s civil liberties through conservatorships. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has voted to implement this new program. There is concern that it will take away the rights of people with mental health disabilities and substance abuse WITHOUT providing voluntary services. Drug treatment, mental health services, and housing must be available when people ask for them!

Read the statement that the Voluntary Services First coalition put out.
