Program Spotlight:
How Well Do You Know our Behavioral Consulting Services Department?


Behavioral health consultation is a problem-solving and strength-building intervention implemented within a collaborative relationship between a professional consultant with behavioral health expertise and one or more individuals with other areas of expertise. Such individuals may include parents, special education teachers, group home administrators, case managers, social workers, or day program staff.


To learn more about this department, please call Grace Ho at our Concord Clinic at 925.825.1793 or...
