The Office of Consumer Affairs (OCA) provides a voice within state government for people with serious mental illness and caregivers of children with serious emotional disorders. It is a contact for people primarily by phone, email and social media regarding issues and challenges around serious mental illness and emotional disorders. The OCA provides education, awareness and training opportunities through the website, social media and in-person. The OCA also has a statewide advisory committee made up of peers and parents that meets regularly and provides feedback to the state.

Help us help you!

Currently, OCA is asking visitors to complete a short survey for us. This survey is to gather data from across the state about which community based mental health services are being accessed, the barriers to access services and what additional services are needed.

This link may open a new tab in your browser. After completing the survey and submitting it, just close the new tab to return to this site.  If a new tab did not open, just press the "back" icon/arrow to return to this site.
