Rio Hondo Community Mental Health Center


Rio Hondo Mental Health Center is a community-based mental health center which is committed to carrying out the Department of Mental Health’s vision of partnering with clients, families, and communities to create hope, recovery, and wellbeing. We have been providing quality mental health services to residents in Los Angeles County for over three decades.  It is our purpose and ongoing goal to continuously look for ways to improve the services we provide.

Mental Health Assessment/Treatment
A licensed or waivered clinician will provide a full mental health assessment to eligible individuals, plan a course of treatment and/or case management as necessary, and triage to appropriate services.

Case Management Teams are designed to consider the individual needs of the consumer and family, based on stated goals, and work in partnership to provide services in the most effective and responsive manner. Services provided may include counseling, linkage and referral to housing, employment, medical and dental care, and supportive services in the community. A staff of psychiatrists provides medication services. This includes full assessment for medication needs, and regularly scheduled follow-up visits, in collaboration with the consumer’s case manager.

Rio Hondo also offers a number of programs for consumers with specialized areas of needs. Some of these programs include the following:

Full-Service Partnership (FSP) is a field-based program for adults and is the highest level of outpatient care by referral only.
