California's Mental Health

Well, it's not great news....CA ranks #49 in adult access to mental health services and 62.6% of adults are not receiving mental health help for their mental illness. CA is ranked #46 in youth access to care with 69.5% of youth not receiving help for their mental illness. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among California adolescents we have more suicides than most states. We are also now seeing a new disturbing trend of younger children reporting suicidal thoughts with 2.5% of all 9 and 10 years in this category.

Did you know half of all lifetimes mental illnesses begin by age 14? We must do more for our youth! Depression accounts for 4 of 10 leading causes of worldwide disability. We work with Sharp Health Plan, Cigna/Evernorth, Aetna and Tricare as in network providers to help with access to care bridge. We provider superbills for all other plans we are out of network with at no cost. We realize it's easier to come to care regularly when we can bill insurance companies directly and reduce the financial burden our on our families who seek services. We also believe it's important when symptoms are severe and acuity is high we see you in person and we provide for this option at 7 locations across San Diego County and in Murrieta. We know early intervention can be the key to preventing future suffering and problems. We treat all ages and they're no such thing as too young for getting more support.

We know so many people can benefit from care. Please call us to book an intake today if you or a loved one can use more support. 619-549-0329 ext 0 for our live, caring intake team member. If this a mental health emergency, please dial 9-8-8. For more information:
