Hello, my name is Kurtis Riener and I am a transitional age youth consumer of mental health resources and I am passionate about mental health and my community. Having dealt with mental illness first hand and knowing the impact it can make on a person’s life, I have become increasingly vested in helping others who suffer in the same way. In pursuit of this goal I have come to facilitate multiple support groups in the community and am now hoping to make a difference on the Alameda County Mental Health Advisory Board. Outside of mental health I am a graduate of James Logan High School and am currently attending Chabot College. I love reading, hiking, and baking.
