    M-POWER's complete mission statement.

    M-POWER is a member-run organization of mental health consumers and current and former psychiatric patients. We will advocate for political and social change within the mental health system and the community, city and statewide. Organizing as a common voice, we will define and secure our human rights and facilitate freedom of information about those rights. We will take a stand on all issues that impede our ability to live as dignified people. We will enlighten mental health professionals and the community, empowering ourselves in the process. We believe all people are entitled to lives free of prejudice and oppression.
