An outpatient mental health program serving diverse, low-income children and teens ages 4-21 years old and their families. Full Circle Family Program (FCFP) brings together evidence-based intervention models specifically designed for children facing a range of behavioral health issues, including severe and persistent mental illness, trauma-related conditions, and family and intergenerational conflicts. The program uses a family strengths approach, working with children in the constellation of their caregivers, family and broader support systems, including schools and community based organizations.

What is Behavioral Mental Health?

Based on the most recent data, one in four Americans experience a mental illness or substance abuse disorder each year, and the majority also has a co-morbid physical health condition. FCFP provides essential behavioral health care services to over 120 clients every year. In recent years, the challenges and barriers to providing these behavioral health services have increased significantly. In response, community based organizations have expanded approaches to providing effective treatment options, including better integration of behavioral health care services into the broader health care continuum.

Who We Are

Childhood and adolescence are important developmental periods in a person’s life. Nonetheless, mental health disorders and other behavioral issues can be a heavy burden for children and teens as well as their families. At FCFP, we offer a full range of services designed to help children and families heal and live a better quality of life.

FCFP focuses on a range of behavioral health issues including trauma related conditions, mental illnesses, family and intergenerational conflicts, reunification, recent immigration, and domestic violence/ community violence.

What role does Felton play in helping children and families dealing with behavioral health issues?

Felton seeks to make outpatient mental health services more accessible to San Francisco residents by targeting EPSDT eligible residents who are not currently served by the San Francisco community mental health system. The goal of the program is to promote individual, family and community well-being. As an advocate for increased access to services for those dealing with mental health issues, Felton helps to provide the latest information regarding assessment, diagnostic evaluation, consultation, case management, crisis intervention, rehabilitation, medication support, collaterals, evaluation and research.
