Membership Application

UACF was founded nearly 20 years ago by three extraordinary mothers who had children in the public mental health system. Today, our statewide efforts provide support and information for parents and families whose children receive mental health services. We provide a voice for parents and family members, educating and empowering them through training and technical assistance, and we advocate for change in mental health policies. Your membership enables UACF to continue its work in the community, ensuring appropriate access to mental health care services and better understanding of mental illness to reduce the stigma and discrimination that many families face. UACF offers its members a variety of engaging and informative publications, networking opportunities, events, classes, and public policy education activities, among other benefits:
