In our Year 20–a milestone year–we served our highest number of children, youth and families, over 2,000! This increase in care was due to the implementation of two vital Behavioral Health programs: School-Based Mental Health and the Mental Health Act-Full-Services Partnership Program. These programs both aimed to serve SLO County’s most underserved and vulnerable population of kids being impacted by mental health issues.
