Office of Individual and Family Affairs (OIFA)
The Care1st Office of Individual and Family Affairs (OIFA) promotes recovery, resiliency and wellness for individuals with mental health and substance use challenges. Everyone on our team has lived experience of receiving behavioral health services or has supported a family member that receives services and has experience navigating our system of care. We all carry a message of wellness achieved! OIFA can help you and your family through engagement, education, support, collaboration and advocacy.
Feedback from our members and families is important to us! Your participation on decision making committees lets us hear directly from those that are receiving behavioral health services. Do you have ideas that can make your services better? Reach out to OIFA to find out more.
