San Luis Obispo Health Integration Project (SLO-HIP)


Please read the following information so you know how to continue to receive services during the temporary COVID-19 public health emergency. Some Behavioral Health programs may require additional forms to be completed. Please reach out to your treatment team with questions and concerns.

Telehealth over Zoom for Health

To avoid a delay in completing your treatment program, County of San Luis Obispo Behavioral Health will begin offering Remote Client Services. Remote Client Services will enable you to continue program with a certified counselor via a virtual meeting platform called Zoom.

In order to help you participate in Zoom Remote Client Services, we have created user-friendly instructions and tutorials found here. Your treatment team will be in contact with you over email with a web link so you may join your sessions virtually through a computer, tablet, or phone.

Who can use this service?

This service is available to adults with severe mental illness who are insured by Medi-Cal. Any adult with Medi-Cal insurance may receive health care services on the Clinic on Wheels.

Is there a charge for this service?

Ongoing services, including tobacco and smoking cessation services, nutrition and fitness education services, and peer support, are free for most SLO Medi-Cal (CenCal) beneficiaries. We help SLO residents who do not have Medi-Cal find resources and may provide some services on a sliding scale basis.

When and where is this service offered?

This service is available throughout the year during regular business hours except during scheduled holidays.
