Who We Are

Mental Health California™, founded by author K.N. Smith, is a California-based 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that informs and educates Californians on health, mental health, and mental-wellness through publishing, training, education, forums, and special programs. We produce an innovative multi-media magazine featuring a wide array of mental-wellness issues of importance to Californians across the lifespan. We also provide training, outreach and education campaigns, and present community forums and special events. Our experience in multi-cultural outreach and communications allows us to offer multi-layered campaigns tied to specific communities such as schools, neighborhoods, or cultural groups. Our campaigns offer teaching, training, sharing circles, events, special publications, speakers, eAlerts, clinical supports through partnerships, and connections to mental health resources.
