Mental Health in San Clemente

Orange County residents rank mental health care as the most significant health need in the county, above the need for substance abuse services and concern about domestic violence. Only about one-third of county residents who need mental health treatment receive services, leaving two-thirds to live without the proper care they need to function at their best. Poor mental health leads to other problems, including substance abuse and poor physical health.2 As a result, the impact of lack of access to health care creates a trickle down effect and causes many more problems for individuals in Orange County.

The Community Resource Center San Clemente (CRCSC) was established in 2010 to serve as a coordinating agency for the improvement of public programs and services for San Clemente residents. CRCSC offers support groups for a number of common mental health issues, including depression, anxiety and abuse. For those struggling with addiction, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings are held at the facility. Education and outreach programs are also available in a variety of areas, including parenting tips and wellness courses. For more information about CRCSC, call 949-303-0353.3
