BEHAVIORAL HEALTH RESOURCES FOR ADULTS

The following list of mental health resources are the mental health programs and services available to adults in Sacramento County who are over the age of 18. Most of the services that are listed have few, if any, eligibility requirements, do not require insurance, and are free or low cost. The list includes those in Sacramento County that are funded by the Division of Behavioral Health Services, as well as State and National resources. Note: Services may be listed more than once.

Sacramento County also provides a number of mental health services to Medi-cal eligible adults who are experiencing a serious mental health illness. These services, including mental health assessments, medication, therapy/counseling and substance abuse counseling, require prior authorization from the Sacramento County Access Team.
