Health and Wellness

For young people in San Francisco, access to culturally attuned and language-appropriate health and wellness services is piecemeal at best. CYC provides a broad array of services for youth facing challenges related to mental health, sexual health, bullying, drug use, and even violence.

Behavioral Health

CYC Behavioral Health programs provide case management and individual family therapy for youth aged 11-21. Our clinicians and case managers conduct psychosocial assessments and address mental health stigma, limited access to linguistically and culturally appropriate services, and cofactors such as violence, chronic truancy, and substance abuse. These programs are funded by Community Behavioral Health Services under the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

We also provide parenting classes, stress relief classes, the Strengthening Families Program, and parent appreciation events and activities for promoting the health and wellbeing of parents.

Intervention

CYC Intervention programs focus on addressing the needs of high-risk and at-risk youth and families with crisis intervention, information, linkages, mental health referrals, individual and family counseling, parenting classes, care management services, court advocacy, conflict intervention, support groups, and linkages to culturally appropriate wraparound services.
