North Carolina Consumer Advocacy, Networking, and Support Organization was established in 2009. It is fully peer operated. The emphasis of its work has been on ensuring that people with lived experience with mental illness and recovery are valued participants in systems advocacy and change.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities. SAMHSA, in collaboration with other Federal agencies, States, Tribes, local organizations, and individuals including consumers and the recovery community, has demonstrated again and again in research and practice - prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover from mental and substance use disorders.
