There is something for just about everyone in San Francisco. The food, famous atmosphere, and authentic culture make it a must see for anyone visiting the city. Depending on the time of year of your visit, you can watch the 49ers play football, the Giants play baseball, or the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. An opera, symphony, and playhouse highlight the local cultural scene, and jazz can be found in famous clubs that dot the city. Other neighborhoods have made their way into memories of people, such as Haight-Ashbury of the 1960s, with the flock of hippies and free love.1 Of course, who could come to San Francisco without visiting the downtown area with the expansion of high-rise buildings and cable cars?

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in San Francisco

Domestic violence is an unfortunate occurrence for many couples and families in cities throughout California. San Francisco has experienced a significant rise in the number of reported incidents of abuse, reported at over 7,300 incidents in 2010.2 Families that face substance abuse issues can find emotional support and guidance at one of the various support groups offered by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). NAMI's support groups are facilitated by a trained leader and provide individuals with peer support to persevere through difficult times. Call NAMI at 415-905-6264 to acquire further details.3

Those in need of safe, stable, and affordable housing can find assistance through the Lutheran Social Services of Northern California (LSS). LSS specifically helps formerly homeless citizens who are living with mental or physical disabilities and families who are living in supportive housing. LSS provides money management programs that educate individuals about budgeting their finances to enable them to maintain independent living. By stabilizing their living situation, LSS helps clients improve functioning in other areas of life. Information about these programs is available by calling 415-581-0891.4

Family Services and Assistance Programs

The Human Services Agency of San Francisco provides mental health and related support programs to thousands of families each year. Those who seek to gain employment can take part in job training workshops. Families who are struggling to make ends meet can find resources for food and rent assistance. Foster care and adoption services are also available. Call 415-557-5000 for further information about the agency's services.5
