Today, Senator John M. W. Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa) recognized Mind OC as the Nonprofit of the Year for the 37th Senate District with the California Association of Nonprofits. Moorlach was pleased to present Mind OC a Resolution on the Senate Floor for their outstanding record of community support.
“Mind OC is leading the effort to solve Orange County’s mental illness and homeless crisis,” Moorlach expressed. “Even before I began public service 25 years ago, I engaged in helping the mentally ill in our county and state, so Mind OC’s efforts are close to my heart. I am honored to recognize this incredible organization with this well-deserved award.”
Mind OC was created to support the advancement of Be Well Orange County, a partnership among public, private, academic, business, medical, and faith-based organizations. The Be Well charter created a community-wide, coordinated ecosystem to support mental health.
Mind OC’s coalition includes doctors, hospitals, service providers, advocacy groups, faith leaders, businesses, and local government. It works among the coalition to treat the whole person and reduce the stigma of mental illness.
