Carson, California is an ideal place for families. A suburb of Greater Los Angeles, Carson is close to a variety of California's most popular attractions, such as Hollywood, Disneyland, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Hermosa Beach. Carson offers families a short drive from everything the big city has to offer, while still enjoying the pleasantries of living in a smaller area. There is, of course, plenty to do within the town itself. Families enjoy spending time at PFC James Anderson Park, located directly off University Drive. Carson also has three public swimming pools to splash and play in on those warm summer days. The Parks and Recreation Department holds a variety of camps in many of the city's parks throughout the summer.1 With pleasant weather most of the year, families will be able to enjoy all twelve of the city's parks. Once September arrives, children can attend fantastic schools, such as Carson Senior High, Andrew Carnegie Middle, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo High, Ralph Bunch Elementary, and the California Academy of Mathematics and Science.

Mental Health in Carson

The Carson Child Guidance Program functions to allay problems of delinquency and dementia in young adolescents and teenagers.2 It serves as a social welfare program implemented in the school to help children who underperform academically due to mental illnesses or those exhibiting behavioral problems. Under the supervision of a psychiatric social worker and a bilingual aide, counseling is offered to those in need in order to improve their quality of life. The program is part of the Carson Coordinating Council's agenda to improve the quality of life in Carson by mobilizing families, social agencies, and socials to work positively. They can be contacted directly through the Carson Coordinating Council's website.

Current Education

At present the Public Safety Department of Carson is engaging groups in productive sessions to increase their understanding of the law.3 It also aims to inculcate an awareness of drug abuse and the repercussion of behavioral disorders. Its Public Safety Services Center provides referrals and resources for assisting victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
