Who We Help

The Family Education & Resource Center (FERC) seeks to provide support to family, friends, partners, and other caregivers who care for or care about a loved one of any age with a serious emotional disturbance or mental health issue.

FERC targets the underserved, nonserved and inappropriately served populations of Alameda County. We assist all who call or come in by offering help, understanding and resources to allow them to aid in the recovery of their loved ones.

Caregivers of all kinds need assistance in overcoming barriers such as stigma and a general lack of knowledge of available mental health and other services, and often require support in navigating and communicating with services and providers.

Whether a parent, sibling, child, spouse or the suffering loved one him/herself contacts us and in whatever emotional stage, we will never turn them away.  Everyone is provided our best, culturally sensitive efforts and connection to the next point in their journey.  For an example of how we are able to help, please visit the following link to:

MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS: Hosted by the Reverend Barbara Meyers in a talk show format, this program highlights different mental health issues.  This episode is about the Family Education & Resource Center and its work.  It features a FERC client who speaks about  how FERC has helped her.
