The shame and isolation associated with stigma prevent thousands of people from seeking the help necessary to live healthy and full lives. Our goal is to raise awareness of the myths and misconceptions that are common in our society about individuals with mental illnesses, substance use disorders and intellectual/developmental disabilities.

Our mission is to use education and outreach to replace myth with truth and foster broader understanding to create communities that welcome individuals into recovery and offer them as much freedom as possible to make their own choices and decisions about how they live their lives.

The ability to make a difference in the life of someone with a mental health or substance use issue is not just for first responders.

Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training teaches police and other first responders to recognize and respond appropriately to individuals in a behavioral health crisis. The goal is to de-escalate dangerous situations and refer individuals, when appropriate, to treatment instead of emergency departments or jail.

We’ve developed a specialized 16-hour Veterans CIT module in addition to the normal 40-hour CIT training to help first responders react appropriately in situations involving military veterans.

In 2018, Alliance trained 222 officers and first responders in CIT. CIT is a foundation for Alliance’s longstanding commitment to improving safety and health in our community.

Decisions about health and medications can be hard for patients to make if they don’t fully understand the benefits and risks of their options. As part of our effort to promote the health literacy and engagement of our members, Alliance has developed tools to promote their understanding and involvement. In addition, we have trained members of the community in Whole Health Action Management (WHAM), which is a peer support group model created to encourage increased resiliency, wellness and self-management.
