Behavioral Health

Santa Cruz Community Health offers comprehensive Behavioral Health support services for life’s challenges. Confidential services are provided in English or Spanish to all patients at our Downtown Women’s Health Center and the new Live Oak Health Center on Capitola Road.  

Your mental and emotional well-being are as important to your overall health as your physical well-being. We offer a “whole person” approach to ensuring physical, mental, social and emotional health.

Please let your medical provider know if you are experiencing any problems in these areas:

  • Depression 

  • Trauma

  • Anxiety 

  • Addiction

  • Stress/Overwhelm

  • Parenting/Family Relationships

Our Team Offers the following:

  • Up to twelve (12) 30-minute sessions with one of our therapists.

  • Brief support provided by your medical provider and your therapist together right in the exam room.

  • A partnership between your medical provider and your therapist to offer whole person care.
