Organization: National Mental Health Consumers' Self-Help ClearinghouseAbout:
The National Mental Health Consumers' Self-Help Clearinghouse, the nation's first peer-run national technical assistance center, has played a major role in the development of the mental health consumer/survivor/ex-patient (c/s/x) movement. The movement strives for dignity, respect, and opportunity for those diagnosed with mental health conditions, often called peers. Individuals who receive or have received mental health services continue to reject the label of "those who cannot help themselves." Instead, they -- and we -- proclaim, "Nothing about us without us."
