Mental health affects every aspect of our lives: how we feel about ourselves and the world; solve problems, cope with stress, and overcome challenges; build relationships and connect with others; and perform in school, at work, and throughout life. Mental health encompasses our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing, and is an essential component of overall health.
Palomar Family Counseling Service (PFCS) has administered programs and services identified to meet changing community mental health needs since its founding in 1956. PFCS provides client-centered and community-based interventions including counseling, case management, psychoeducation, and prevention and early intervention to residents of North San Diego County.
We are entering our next fiscal year with new opportunities, new partnerships, new strategic priorities, and an unwavering commitment to offer our community access to professional, affordable, culturally competent, mental health services.
This year we will:
- Pilot a project to strengthen the capacity of early childhood education centers to offer high quality programs that include evidence-based preventive mental health interventions to children and their families.
- Expand and strengthen our efforts to reach at-risk youth who are unengaged, isolated, and withdrawn from school, activities, and peer relationships. Our goal is to help youth move from hopelessness to hope, isolation to community.
- Improve access to culturally and linguistically competent mental health services for individuals who are uninsured, underinsured, or lack financial resources through strategic initiatives to attract and retain a diverse behavioral health workforce.

Everyone should look forward to tomorrow.
