Therapists in San Diego

San Diego has long been regarded as having a weak mental-health safety net. The County has implemented a 10-year strategic plan to help services for low-income people, establish patient-centered federally qualified health centers, and better integrate mental health care with primary care by placing primary care providers in mental health clinics. There is an acute shortage of mental health providers in San Diego who serve the general population and lower-to-middle income level residents. There are significant racial and ethnic disparities for incidences of serious mental illness among adults: Native American, multiracial, and African American populations have some of the highest rates. San Diego County Division of Behavioral Health Services (BHS) is a helpful resource for counseling and support.
Suicide is a problem in San Diego. A recent study noted a 20% increase in the suicide rate over the last six years. There are over 240,000 armed forces veterans living in San Diego County, and there is a high need for specialized treatment. The San Diego Access & Crisis Line can be reached 24 hours a day at (888) 724-7240. It provides mental health crisis intervention and counseling referrals, including referrals for those without health insurance.
