Who We Serve: Adult residents of Long Beach, CA, and surrounding areas who have been diagnosed with serious mental illness who are experiencing a mental health crisis.

Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

About the Program: We believe recovery starts from within, and that our job is to do whatever it takes to help you cope with crisis and gain skills to deal with your challenges more effectively. We have a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, psychiatric prescribers, and nursing staff who are all here to help you on your path.

Our services emphasize choice-making skills and harm-reduction techniques. We provide a safe, respectful environment where you can receive immediate, individualized assistance and a compassionate presence to stabilize symptoms, avoid the need for higher levels of care, and receive appropriate referrals to community-based resources.

Operated by ؼ, under contract with the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health, the MHUCC is a family and provider-friendly program. It is not an emergency room or private hospital.
