Behavioral Health Services

Central Peninsula Hospital is a major partner in a regional collaboration, and a lead grantee on a three-year Division of Behavioral Health Prevention and Early Intervention Grant. During the first three-year cycle, CPH was recognized by the state as a model project and the coalition requested CPH remain as the lead grantee during the current cycle. Now in it's fourth year, the Community Prevention Team meets monthly to identify needs and conducts a variety of community programs including family and parenting programs, early intervention programming in schools, behavioral health screenings of older adults, community based depression screenings, recovery month celebrations, Fetal Alcohol Disorder screenings, and focused interventions for very high risk incarcerated youth.
