The Community Services Bureau is a certified mental health provider to children age zero to five. Each of the children in our program is screened for the need for mental health services. Children and their families who might need help are identified and are referred to our bureau’s Mental Health Unit with written consent of the parent(s). The Mental Health Unit arranges for assessments, individual and family therapy, and parent support services.
Our Mental Health Unit works in collaboration with Contra Costa County Children’s Mental Health Department. Mental Health Interns work under the supervision of licensed clinicians in a variety of preschool sites. This internship program provides Interns with group and individual supervision as well as specialized training in child development, play therapy, sand tray therapy and ongoing treatment.
