    Behavioral Health Program for Adolescents and Adults

    Give to the Teen Behavioral Health Project at PAMF

    The Peninsula lacks an integrated behavioral health program for adolescents, and a confusing array of services for adults. With your help, we can build upon a solid foundation of quality care, continue our efforts to overcome the stigma of behavioral health services and tailor treatments to diverse age, gender, racial and cultural needs.

    Mills-Peninsula Health Services and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) collectively provide ambulatory and hospital-based health care services to more than 70,000 adolescents (ages 12-18) within our four-county service area. We know that at least 10,000 of them have behavioral disorders, but our records show that most have yet to be identified, diagnosed and treated, keeping them disconnected from medical care.
