Amarillo Area Mental Health Consumers(AAMHC) was formed in 1996 by a group of peers who were
interested in learning more about empowerment and advocacy. In the year 2002, we became a satellite organization
providing peer support services under the auspices of Texas Mental Health Consumers, a non-profit out of Austin.
As the organization evolved we became an independent peer support recovery center funded by the Department of State Health Services.
The primary mission of Amarillo Area
Mental Health Consumers is to organize, encourage, educate, and train people with
to advocate for themselves and support each other
in their recovery.The group's vision is the integration of individuals
mental illness into the community as productive,
functional, valued citizens.
