More resources for studentsSunday, March 15, 2020
There are more community-based mental health resources for students that have come to our attention:
1. https://www.accessinst.org/ Access Institute in Hayes Valley is a full service clinic, with psychotherapy and psychiatry (best for anyone who may be at acute risk, for example suicidal plans--many places may not risk taking on the liability of working with critical cases, but Access is equipped to do so).
2. https://www.ciis.edu/counseling-and-acupuncture-clinics/integral-counseling-center-at-pierce-street is a clinic that offers psychotherapy at sliding scale; there are Integral Counseling Centers in Pacific Heights, Hayes Valley, and Noe/Mission. These tend to be more focused on long-term, depth therapy.
3. https://www.liberationinstitute.org/ The Liberation Institute is located in the Mission, and offers more reduced rates than any other clinic.
Students may also want to search on https://bayareaopenminds.org/ for referrals and/or groups; Bay Area Open Minds is a resource for providers and those seeking services committed to gender-affirming, queer, and sex-positive/ sex-work supportive therapists.
Finally, there is the Bay Area Warm line: https://www.mentalhealthsf.org/peer-run-warmline/; this is a free mental health phone line for anyone needing immediate emotional support but is not in an active crisis (psychosis or suicidal action).
