Mission Statement 

Consumer Action Network (CAN) empowers mental health consumers by promoting recovery and self-advocacy.

Promoting Recovery & Self Advocacy 

CAN’s underlying premise and core principle is that recovery is possible for every person who has experienced some form of mental illness. CAN understands that recovery is not a neatly defined “end-stage” of treatment or a specific outcome; rather, CAN accepts that recovery for mental health consumers is a continual process that embraces growth, transformation, accountability, and 
self-direction, wherein each consumer can find meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in his or her life.
