Founded in 1989, the Attitudinal Healing Connection, Inc. (AHC) in West Oakland, CA, is a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit and a member of the global network of Attitudinal Healing Centers.
Attitudinal Healing Connection (AHC) builds healthy communities by breaking the cycle of violence. We provide platforms for creative expression and communication for children, youth, adults and families. Through our educational programs, workshops, events and healing circles, we cultivate skills in personal development, community leadership and the arts. AHC promotes the understanding that we can choose peace over conflict and love over fear.
Our work is based on the principles of Attitudinal Healing, a non-traditional approach to mental health that develops resiliency by promoting self-awareness, mindfulness and compassion.
