Welcome to AAMHC

Austin Area Mental Health Consumers, Inc. (AAMHC) is one of the largest consumer operated service centers in Texas; serving approximately 1000 members.

The SHAC supports consumers in becoming independent members of society and encourages them to act on their own behalf. We help them in their efforts to become self-reliant and thus regain control of their own lives.
These services reflect the eight core values of Austin Area Mental Health Consumers, Inc.; empowerment and self-determination, promoting recovery, consumer-control, education emphasis, peer support, advocacy, inclusiveness and diversity, and collaboration.

People living with mental illness in our community go without having peer support, job readiness skills, and a safe place to go to receive services in order to help cope with their mental illness. There are a variety of factors including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, age, domestic violence, or divorce that could keep someone from receiving the services they need. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, people with a mental illness make up the members that we serve.

With the generous support of people like you, we will be able to help more people not only get the services they need, but also to work toward a brighter future with programs in job training, education, counseling, and peer support.
