The vision for what was to become the Mental Health Association of Northwestern PA began to form in March 1992. This is when the Consumer Empowerment Project began at MECA with a vision of housing mental health consumer-run, consumer-directed projects. The idea was to form a group of consumers interested in participation on social service agency boards, in essence, to have meaningful consumer involvement in organizations that were directing the flow of services being provided.
