Our Work:

all voices deserve
to be heard.

Many people with mental health conditions are forced into oppressive situations and settings, often due to circumstances and systems that fall outside their control.

KTP staff + advocates are focused on ensuring equal access for all community members to compassionate, trauma-informed mental health services, supports, and housing.

We provide needed education, resources, and training to maximize the impact of state funding for services that will save the lives of our community members.

KTP makes a difference by preventing restrictive practices while expanding the services and supports delivered by people who know and have personally experienced recovery.”

– Marcia DuFore, former KTP Chair
