About Zima


Zima Creason is a parent, advocate, mental health policy expert, and businesswoman that has worked in the mental health policy and education field since 2001. Currently, she serves as the President and CEO of Mental Health America of California (MHAC) and she was elected as a San Juan Unified School District Governing Board Member in 2018. She is committed to coalition building and stakeholder empowerment/engagement. 

Zima serves in a variety of volunteer capacities. She is appointed to the California Department of Education Student Mental Health Policy Workgroup, member of the My Sister’s House Friends Committee, and a member of the National Institute of Mental Health Outreach Partnership Steering Committee.

Zima is dedicated to supporting young people to avoid crisis outcomes in adulthood, mental health and wellness, social justice, and for all Americans to have access/opportunity to achieve the American Dream regardless of zip code, culture, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender identification and/or who they love.

• Empower student stakeholders to have a meaningful role in the determination of onsite and district policies, practices, and curriculum
