Mental Health Client Action Network
The Only Mental Health Peer-Run Organization
in Santa Cruz, CA
I’m David Badillo, I was referred to MHCAN by my therapist 12 years ago. I started coming here when I moved to Santa Cruz. I often felt shocked and alone.
When I came to MHCAN my life started to improve. I found a whole community here. This community has helped me find purpose and the healthy relationship I’m in today.
I started working here in 2015 and my mental health has continued to improve. I now run my own support group. I would like to continue to do what I do here at MHCAN in the future.
