Providing education and support, we are dedicated to meeting the immediate and future needs of our Youth, Adults, Families, and the greater Community. We work for the day mental health is considered as essential as physical health and stigma is a belief of the past.

I have been involved with the MWC for many years in various capacities on their Board. Currently I am honored to be selected as their board chair and get the pleasure of working closely with their staff. The MWC is an amazing organization whose services and programs reach thousands of people in need, not only for individuals, but for their families and the Santa Barbara Community!
I attended the annual lunch fundraiser and listened to the CEO's report. AnnMarie Cameron is obviously a very thoughtful and positive person, and she cares deeply for the organization she runs. I met several of the board members, and immediately wanted to help. I attended a meeting of their fundraising committee and was impressed with the work they have done. Count me in. The Mental Wellness Association of Santa Barbara is a first class organization doing very important work. I urge you to support them in any way you can.
