Our Mission: Health, Justice, Prosperity.

What We Do

By supporting efforts to raise public awareness and implement sensible programming and policy, and through convening influential allies locally and nationally, Equitas focuses collective problem-solving energy on managing mental and behavioral health challenges, and other challenges stemming from hidden disabilities and disadvantages. Furthermore, we support efforts that ensure society does not default to the criminal justice system. Learn how you can help.
