Statement of Intent
To empower mental health consumers through meaningful involvement
The Consumer Initiative Fund is a unique and progressive program that funds and supports projects that are proposed, managed, and led by people with lived experience with mental illness.
The program consists of project managers, liaison worker/committee members, participants and a coordinator.
Projects foster inclusion and community integration, combat and decrease isolation, provide opportunities for professional and personal growth, build capacity, and encourage participants to realize their potential.
The Consumer Initiative Fund embodies the Philosophy of Recovery with the belief that:
- Recovery is possible
- People can have purpose in their lives
- People can improve the quality of their life through self determination
