Clinical Behavioral Health
The Clinical Behavioral Health Department of the Native American Health Center
uses a community mental health model. The Clinical Behavioral Health (formerly known as the Family & Child Guidance Clinic) opened its doors in 1985. A holistic approach is utilized to accomplish a meaningful community intervention.
The client is treated as a "whole" person with physical (medical/dental), emotional, spiritual, and social needs. Treatment is geared toward restoring balance and integrative health for the individual and the family.
The Clinical Behavioral Department has locations in Oakland and San Francisco. They both offer counseling services and Native cultural programs to assist with overall wellness.
Opening its doors in the mid 1980s, the Clinical Behavioral Health Department was created to provide outpatient mental health and substance abuse services that included individual, group and family counseling.
