For Mental Health Services For Foster Youth

Children in foster care can often benefit from mental health services. If the child has a social worker, it is their responsibility to help find appropriate services from providers who accept Medi-Cal. You can also contact the Department of Mental Health (“DMH”) Access Line at 1 800 854 7771 or the social services information line at 211.

There are different types of services available depending on the child’s needs, as well as many different types of providers.
