We all need a helping hand every now and again.

Supporting Mental Health in our community

We care about the health of our patients, far beyond the walls of our hospital. We are an essential access point to an extensive range of services and a bridge that links our patients to partners and services that meet the complex layers of need within the community.

In honor of World Mental Health Day tomorrow, we want to let you know about the many ways we support the mental health and well-being of our patients and community. Partner with us today by making a donation to support California Hospital’s work.

California Behavioral Health Clinic

Supporting the emotional and psychological well-being of children and their families so that they might overcome barriers and reach their full potential. Participants receive individual, family, and group psychotherapy, psychiatric and case management services.

Family Preservation

Designed to protect children by strengthening and preserving families whose children are at risk of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. The program promotes the physical, emotional, social, educational, cultural, and spiritual growth of children in safe and caring family homes.

One therapist works with the whole family and participants receive weekly home-based counseling and case management, as well as care coordination, parenting classes, support groups, and multidisciplinary care.

Wraparound Program

A home-based support program that utilizes a comprehensive approach to meet the complex needs of children with mental health and behavioral concerns who are involved in the child welfare system.

For more information about these and other services provided through our Hope Street Margolis Family Center, click here.>>>

Cultural Trauma & Mental Health Resiliency Project

This project is a joint effort among Dignity Health’s six Southern California hospitals, including CHMC, to increase the awareness, skills, and capacity of local community organizations and members to identify mental distress, address the impacts of trauma, reduce stigma, and increase resiliency through the delivery of mental health awareness education.

The project focuses on children and youth of color and the adults who care for them, with an emphasis on areas with high health disparities such as poverty, racism, adverse childhood experiences, and violence.


Community Health Programs and Support Groups

Our community health department hosts regular emotional wellness and breast cancer support groups, along with classes that cover issues such as stress management, anxiety, and depression. These classes are a free resource for members of the community.

CA Bridge Program

This program runs through our Emergency Department and serves opioid-dependent patients. After starting them on Medication-Assisted Therapy, a Substance Use Navigator provides assistance and follow up to help patients successfully access outpatient treatment.

Maternity Services Screening

Staff in our Couplet Care department administer the Edinburgh Post Natal Depression Scale to all patients after delivery to determine if they have Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. If they do, the mother can be referred to our California Behavioral Health Clinic for care.
