MECCA’s Training Programs are designed to share MECCA’s expertise in cultural competency with fellow community leaders.

MECCA has worked with both the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Pacific Clinics in translating their peer mentoring programs into the threshold languages of Orange County and in ensuring the cultural competency of these programs. Through the Pacific Clinics Workforce Training Program, MECCA implemented the peer to peer training of multi-ethnic consumers and graduated hundreds of culturally competent peer mentors. MECCA was also the cultural consultant for the Recovery Education Institute, translating training materials, educational resources and facilitating workshops for ethnic students of the Institute.
