ABOUT THE WISE U PROGRAM  

WISE U is a program of NorCal MHA, the oldest peer-run consumer advocacy agency in Northern California. We know what it takes to create lasting employment success for peers and we not only talk the talk, we have been walking the walk since 1946, when our agency was founded. For decades, NorCal MHA has successfully hired, trained, supported, and advanced the careers of consumers, family members, parents/caregivers, and transition age youth (collectively referred to as “peers”) working and volunteering in California's Public Mental Heath System ("PMHS").
