We are a mental health advisory committee, known as the Consumer Council, out of the Petoskey North Country Community Mental Health office, which serves Northern Michigan, including Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet, Kalkaska and Otsego Counties.

The Consumer Council is made up of previous and current clients; 3 appointed individuals from each represented county. The Consumer Council organizes advisory groups, ad hoc committees, and workgroups with the goal of reviewing and providing feedback regarding NCCMH programs, policies, and procedures. 

We (the Consumer Council) created this website to empower people with mental health issues by:

  • providing local and national mental health resources, news and tools for recovery
  • promoting awareness of stigma
  • promoting anti-stigma
  • sharing stories, poetry and art

You can also tell your story about your experiences with mental health and how you obtained wellness and recovery.
