Connecting families through shared experience.
Supporting Maryland Families Since 1999
Maryland Coalition of Families (MCF) is a state-wide nonprofit dedicated to connecting, supporting and empowering families who are experiencing behavioral health challenges. We also advocate to improve services and systems that impact individuals with behavioral health challenges and to reduce stigma related to behavioral health.
What is Family Peer Support?
Family peer support is all about connecting families through shared experience. Our staff know firsthand what it’s like to care for someone with a behavioral health issue. They draw on their own experience to offer emotional support, share knowledge, build skills and connect Maryland families with resources and opportunities in their own communities.
