Mental Health Services
Behavioral Health and Recovery Services provides mental health services to individuals who are eligible for Medi-Cal and/or members of the Health Plan of San Mateo through outpatient clinics in Daly City, San Mateo, the Coastside, Redwood City and East Palo Alto, in school-based locations, and through a network of community agencies and independent providers who offer outpatient services, residential treatment, rehabilitation and other services for adults and children. We are the mental health and substance use plan for Medi-Cal beneficiaries residing in San Mateo County.
Mental health services are also available for emotionally disturbed children, older adults at risk of institutionalization, children in special education or at risk of out-of-home placement, uninsured residents of San Mateo County and people of any age in a major crisis. Services are aimed at helping individuals experiencing a mental illness maintain their independence, and helping children with serious emotional challenges continue their education and remain with their families.
