Mental Health

Our highly skilled, compassionate professionals offer expert care for those with mental health conditions.

Whether you or a loved one is facing an immediate crisis or has been struggling with a mental health condition for years, our experienced mental health professionals can help by delivering expert care for mild to severe conditions. We offer a safe and comfortable healing environment where you’re treated with respect and compassion. Our large outdoor patio, professional staff and separate treatment environments — different areas for inpatient and acute psychiatric care — help patients feel secure in knowing that their mental health needs are being attended to.

If you or someone else is having suicidal thoughts or is in a dangerous situation, call 911 immediately. If you’re interested in our services, please contact your doctor or mental health provider. For a free doctor referral, call the El Camino Hospital Health Line at 800-216-5556.
