Therapy El Sobrante, CA

Tara Hills, Pinole, San Pablo, Hercules, Rodeo, North Richmond

El Sobrante, translated as “leftover”, or “surplus” has around 12,000 residents and is located in Contra Costa County, California.  As early as 5,000 B.C., the Huichium tribe, which is a sub-tribe of the Ohlone tribe, settled in the East Bay, naming this area El Sobrante.  There is a shell mound near San Pablo Creek that the Huichiun left.  It was in the 1770s that the tribe was forced to convert to Christianity by the Spanish missionaries, dying in large numbers.  In 1841 the land was granted to Juan Jose and Victor Castro.  The boundaries were complicated, with the city being the leftover area that was granted, but with the dispute over the boundaries, a lot of the land was sold to pay for legal fees, with this area remaining and Victor Castro building an adobe dwelling on Castro Ranch Road.  Several schools help make up the local education system for children, including Olinda Elementary and Crespi Junior High School. El Sobrante has a diverse economy, with the largest employers being Color Spot Nurseries, Bookside Hopsital, Chevron, Bio-Rad Laboratories, and Contra Costa Community College.  Because of its location in the Bay Area, it is easily accessible by ground or air.  There are several parks, a community center and a public library as well. 1

Mental Health in El Sobrante

The California Health Care Foundation has shown that mental health issues, such as autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, and substance addiction are found among the residents of Contra Costa County, although the percentage of registered mental health diseases is quite low.2

A benefit of living in El Sobrante is that Contra Costa County has numerous facilities for those who suffer from mental health related issues. The most prominent among these is the Contra Costa Crisis Center. Representatives are available to speak with 24 hours a day; their hotline can be reached at 847-697-2380.3

Current Initiatives

Perhaps the most promising sign for the people of Contra Costa County, is the fact that recently the Governor of California, Jerry Brown, proposed a new budget plan worth approximately $100 billion, which would be used to develop the healthcare, welfare, and educational facilities for the entire state of California. An additional $760 million was proposed for spending on the development of mental health, substance abuse, and dental care.
