About Us

Manzanita Services, Inc. (also known as Manzanita) is a peer-run organization which serves individuals with severe and persistent mental health considerations in inland Mendocino County. The mission of Manzanita Services is to empower our most vulnerable community members to improve their quality of life. We are a peer led organization which values integrity and respect, provides an open door, and offers a safe space to anyone in need.

Manzanita employees are dedicated to demonstrating cultural sensitivity and humility, and to providing peer-led, client-centered care. We offer both peer-administered care and support through our Wellness Centers and clinical care, case management, and rehabilitation services through our Clinical Program. Both programs are peer-focused, and a recent survey of our workforce showed that our organization is 100% peer run.
