Older Adult Team


Our Access Team is the first contact to request mental health services, and can be reached at (707) 565-6900.

We provide  outreach and engagement and outpatient specialty mental health treatment services to adults ages 60 and older. Our multidisciplinary team is able provide a wide array of services to older adults living with serious mental illness, including:

  • Medication education, monitoring, and delivery
  • Case management
  • Referrals
  • Visiting clients when hospitalized (either medically or psychiatrically) and facilitating communications between the medical and psychiatric staff for care and follow-up planning
  • Transportation services, including attending important doctor’s appointments, having routine laboratory work, and participating in community-offered services to reduce isolation

We also maintain a relationship with the Bridges to Health program, which helps link clients to their primary care with much greater ease.

Our Outreach Liaison receives referrals from the Human Services Department's In-home Supportive Services and provides in-home assessment and care coordination for older adults who show symptoms of depression, serious mental illness, and/or suicidal thinking.

Funded by the Mental Health Services Act

This program receives funding through the voter-approved Mental Health Services Act (Prop. 63). MHSA funding provides a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and services, and the necessary infrastructure, technology and training elements to effectively support our local mental health services system.
