Mental Health in Pomona

Pomona is home to many minority residents, with about 22 percent of citizens identifying as Latino or Hispanic.2 Because minority populations tend to be underserved by mental health agencies, the need for quality, accessible, culturally sensitive mental health care is very high.

Day and evening groups are available at several locations throughout the Pomona Valley, making it easy to access support. Information about current groups can be obtained by calling 909-399-3289.3

Goodwill of Southern California recognizes that many youth do not have the skills they need to be self-sufficient and productive community members who lead mentally healthy lives. As a result, they offer many opportunities for youth to learn valuable skills that will help them transition into adulthood.

Mentoring services, internships and work experiences further prepare youth to enter the workforce. By preparing young people to be self-sufficient, with the educational and vocational tools they need to be successful, this company ensures that fewer youth experience homelessness, unemployment, and overall dissatisfaction with life.
