Mental Health-Youth

The Behavioral Health Department has fully re-opened all of our locations for in person and walk-in care.  We welcome the community back to our clinics, and we look forward to continuing to move towards fully available, safe, and accessible programs either in-person, or by telehealth.  At this time, masks, distancing, and screening for COVID-19 will continue to be required at all of our facilities, even for people who have been fully vaccinated.

As a healthcare provider with vulnerable patients, we're continuing these requirements in alignment with recommendations from public health authorities. Our top priority is the safety of our patients, visitors, employees, and community. We will continue to provide updates about Behavioral Health programs and facilities and post the latest information on our COVID-19 page.

If you are in crisis, please call the Central Coast Hotline at (800) 783-0607. You may also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or text HELLO to ‘741-741’.

The Youth Mental Health Services Division of the Behavioral Health Department provides a range of services for children and youth affected by mental illness, trauma, and environmental stress. These services include individual and family therapy, rehabilitation, case management, and psychiatric care.

Services assist children and youth in the recovery and discovery processes, helping them to achieve their highest quality of life by providing culturally competent, strength-based, and client- and family-centered strategies that utilize best practices.

Our goal is to instill hope and optimism, assisting children and families to develop mastery over their own lives, and helping them to thrive in their homes, schools, and communities.
