Mental health is a fundamental building block for a flourishing community. Community engagement is one of the many ways that FERC connects and stays connected to our community. We are always working to connect with more Community Based Organizations in order to always have the best resources and education available to you. The relationship that FERC has with our Family Members is one of high value and we are always working to find ways to better your experience with us. We want to have events tailored to you and your experience, a safe space to focus on your own self-care, and a welcoming environment for you to grow and learn as you maneuver the mental health care system of Alameda County.
Our goal is to be able to make our services as accessible and relevant as possible. If there is a service gap, we want to bridge it. If there is a need, we want to fulfill it. We also seek to destigmatize mental health in the community through our outreach.
If you are a part of a Community Based Organization and are interested in collaborating with us, please reach out to the Community Engagement Manager, Bianca Anderson.
Collaboration with local non-profit organizations is essential for our program to proudly serve Alameda County residents. We deeply appreciate the support from our community partners, and work to provide the same support in return. Check out some of our recent partnerships, local non-profits we’ve sponsored or provided donation to, and appreciations to organizations hosting events FERC is invited to or attending. You may also find the events we are hosting and/or attending on the events tab.
