Minds on the Edge

The television program MINDS ON THE EDGE: Facing Mental Illness effectively illuminates challenging ethical issues as well as systemic flaws in program and policy design, service coordination, and resource allocation. These problems are contributing to a mental health system that is widely acknowledged to be broken.

Every Minute dot org is a grassroots campaign uniting advocates, mental health professionals and organizations into a single coalition creating a public forum advancing the need and benefit of increased mental health research.

Family Service Coordination offers families of those with mental illness education and referral. The Family Service Coordinator serves as a liaison with Sonoma County Mental Health and other community based organizations and services. Any family member or support person may contact the Family Service Coordinator for assistance in accessing services for themselves or their loved one. Contact Katie Swan at (707) 571-8452
