Comprehensive Community Behavioral Health and Wellness Clinics

La Maestra’s Comprehensive Community Behavioral Health and Wellness Clinic (Wellness Clinic) offers outpatient care to promote brain health, healing, and well-being.  The Wellness Clinic provides personalized, evidence-based care to La Maestra patients including children, adults, and families.

What is Brain Health?

The brain, like other organs in the body, has specific functions like sleep, awake, concentration, and so forth.  

Thinking, feeling, and behavior are also part of your brain’s functions. Sometimes these functions can overwork or underperform, causing you to experience suffering and making it harder for you to reach your goals. When this happens for a while, and sometimes in cycles, we call it specific names (some examples below), to help identify which brain functions are off and to explore ways to help build your brain health back.

Some common problems include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Mental Disorders
  • Alcohol Use Disorder
  • Drug Use and Addiction

We have a multi-disciplinary team that is culturally competent and ready to support your wellness. Our team includes:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners
  • Licensed Clinical Psychologists
  • Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists
  • Licensed Clinical Social Workers
  • Substance Use Disorder Counselors
  • Peer Support Specialists
  • Case Managers
  • Outreach Specialists
  • Program Liaisons

Mental & Behavioral Health
La Maestra has had a fully staffed Family Wellness Unit of Behavioral Services (FWU) since 2004. The department helps patients experiencing problems with stress or anxiety, depression, domestic violence, or victims of crime. Counseling services for the whole family are provided. The Family Wellness Unit is well integrated within and has strong ties to the broader county network of allied agencies, including child protective service entities, refugee agencies, the courts, and Health Center Partners of Southern California, a clinic consortium that represents community health centers in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial Counties.
