Behavioral Health Services 

Life isn't always easy. Let's face it, everyone has occasional problems, but sometimes those problems don't go away. In fact, every year, one in five Americans will suffer from a psychiatric disorder that interferes with daily life.

Nobody plans for mental illness. But help is available; and with treatment most people are able to function well. Our multi-disciplinary staff will develop a tailored treatment program that guides each individual toward a healthier future and an appreciation for life.

Outpatient Mental Health service

Our goal is to help you and your family function well, be healthy and work on your treatment goals. Treatment starts with an appointment and an evaluation. Treatment can take the form of individual, family, or group therapy, medication management with a psychiatrist, support, education, referrals as well as other treatment options.  Licensed clinical staff will assist you in determining what help is needed and available. An appointment can be scheduled to diagnosis the issues and begin treatment; evaluation, diagnosis, therapy, medication management, neuropsychological testing services are available. Our Clinical staff consists of Psychiatrists, Child Adolescent Psychiatrists, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Neuropsychologist, Psychologist, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Licensed Marriage Family Therapists.

Partial hospitalization

Partial hospitalization, also known as day treatment, is a daily, intensive, multi-disciplinary program. It is recommended for people with serious emotional disorders who temporarily need a structured treatment environment but are able to return home on nights and weekends. Partial hospitalization is ideal for the person whose psychiatric problems have been stabilized but more intensive care is required.

Inpatient services

Inpatient services are for people who need 24-hour observation and intensive treatment. Located at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, our inpatient facility is called Garden Pavilion. It offers a safe and therapeutic environment for people suffering from severe, often life-threatening psychiatric disorders.
