Information for Consumers

As a consumer of mental health services, you and your family have the right to quality care delivered with respect and competence. CCPS actively works with regional mental health consumer advocacy organizations to help shape the policies of public and private institutions to assure quality care for people who have mental illness. We also maintain a list of answers to frequently asked questions about mental health care.

Several organizations exist which provide help for consumers seeking care in our service area. We encourage you to contact one or more of these organizations if you are having trouble getting the information and services you need.
