General information

Get Involved!

For more than 20 years, UACF has been a leader in California communities by providing children, youth, and families with the education, information, and resources to effectively advocate for their children and youth, receive necessary supports and services, and to end the stigma associated with mental health challenges.

As we continue to expand our network of parents and families we are dedicated to the expansion and development of our community based chapters as well as the statewide training and technical assistance programs under the UACF Leadership Institute.

Join UACF and show your support to supporting the parent voice at every level of decision making. See below for the many ways you can support UACF and children and youth across the state.
