Play an active role in your recovery
You are the most important part of your recovery. We are here to help you learn and get information about your mental health. Find out as much as you can about mental health and information about your diagnosed mental health concern.
Get involved in your treatment. This is called shared-decision making. It means you, your family of choice and your behavioral health and physical health providers make treatment decisions together. Mercy Care needs involvement from you and your family as we work to make the system better.
Within Mercy Care, there is an Office of Individual and Family Affairs that helps you and your family through engagement, education, support, collaboration and advocacy. You can learn more about the Office of Individual and Family Affairs by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also learn more about Arizona’s vast community of advocates statewide by visiting www.azpeerandfamily.org.
