Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Sacramento Valley Chapter of CAMFT is committed to and is intentional with regards to increasing awareness of bias as well as the harmful effects caused by inequity. To that end, our chapter has formed a diversity committee whose purpose is to enhance the diversity of programming offered through our chapter's continuing education, in content and in representation. We acknowledge that this will be a living statement that will change as we learn and grow.

SVC-CAMFT exist to be a community of therapists supporting the community in having a healthy mind. We can only accomplish this goal by remaining open, non-judgmental and creating safe spaces for those seeking mental health services. SVC-CAMFT echoes the message noted in State CAMFT's press release.
