Consumers Self Help was founded in 1986 when a group of Consumers banded together to advocate for a Consumer Run Program.  They received a small grant of $20,000 from the County Board of Supervisors to start their program.

At first, the program rented meeting rooms at Churches and other non-profit organizations.  In 198    9 Consumers Self Help became a private non-profit organization and by 1995 the organization was expanded to three separate programs, the South Center, North Center and The Office for Patients’ Rights for Sacramento County. The contract for the Wellness & Recovery Center under the Mental Health Services Act was awarded to Consumers Self Help in April 2007. In January 2008, Consumers Self Help obtained the contract to provide Patients' Rights services to clients in Yolo County.
