Become a Community Partner

    Our Community Partners Network (CPN) is a national network of locally-based organizations that serve families struggling with substance use and/or mental health issues. We work together to strengthen member organizations by sharing resources, fostering communication, and increasing the bandwidth of the small-but-mighty teams dedicated to helping families.

    Eligibility

    Community partners are nonprofit organizations in the United States with substance or mental/behavioral health focus. Nonprofit treatment providers are not eligible unless they are joining via their family services or prevention arm. For-profit ventures are excluded.

    Alignment pledge

    Philosophical and cultural alignment of organizational programming with these basic principles will ensure good mission fit:

    1. We commit to working with other organizations in a spirit of cooperation, not competition.
    2. We commit to following best practices and providing evidence-based care to families struggling with substance use and/or mental health issues.
    3. We commit to treating those who struggle with substance use and/or mental health issues with kindness, compassion, and empathy.
    4. We commit to sharing information, generating ideas, and offering constructive feedback to strengthen our own work and the work of others.
