La Maestra Family Wellness Unit | 2004 Timelines: La Maestra History

La Maestra Family Wellness Unit is established in City Heights to expand integrated, culturally competent mental and behavioral health services for all ages, including treatment for depressive and anxiety disorders, as well as severely mentally ill, uninsured, and low income residents, through counseling and medication management.
By 2007, the unit operates full-time and expands its Enhanced Psychosocial services at all sites. Family Wellness Unit staff trains 80 employees at medical and dental sites about how to refer patients in need of mental health services, and develops programs tailored especially for refugee populations, pregnant women, seniors and children.
