They attend mental health conferences, schools, hospitals, and health care agencies with the play and conduct post-show discussions to continue the conversation on mental health and wellness. They want the community to know that mental illness is serious and can be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. They also want to bring hope to the community and that it is okay to talk about mental health issues

Orange County Resources Available Through MECCA




MECCA has always advocated that true forms of cultural competency entail much more than the mere distribution of materials or the linguistic translation of materials; culturally competent materials ensure that the content, when translated and subsequently distributed, is accessible and culturally congruent to each ethnic community. Indeed, MECCA’s member agencies specialize in providing targeted outreach to hard-to-reach and under-served community members with linguistically and culturally competent services. MECCA’s member agencies, however, are much more than just linguistic and culturally competent; MECCA’s member agencies are trailblazing community-based organizations which embody the very ethnic and cultural identity of the community members the agency purports to serve.
