Welcome to The Good Shepherd's Mental Health Services

At The Good Shepherd, we recognize the crucial role of mental well-being in fostering the development of strong, resilient children within our communities. Our Mental Health Services are specifically tailored to address the unique challenges faced by foster children in the San Bernardino County and Riverside County areas. We are committed to offering comprehensive support and care to enhance emotional well-being and improve the overall mental health of these young individuals.

For foster children in need of psychological support, our Mental Health Services stand ready to assist. Whether it’s through outpatient mental health services for those requiring regular but less intensive care, or inpatient services for more acute needs, we are here to provide a range of options tailored to each child’s circumstances.

Additionally, recognizing the importance of a comfortable and familiar environment for healing, we offer in-home mental health services. This allows children to receive the care they need in the safety and comfort of their own homes, supported by the expertise of licensed clinical therapists and licensed psychologists. These professionals are skilled in delivering care that not only addresses immediate concerns but also promotes long-term emotional well-being.

Through a collaborative approach, incorporating behavioral health consultations and the guidance of brain health consultants, our services are designed to be accessible and adaptable to the specific needs of each foster child we serve. Our goal is to ensure that every child in the San Bernardino County and Riverside County areas has the support they need to navigate life’s challenges and thrive emotionally and mentally.

Our Approach

Holistic Care for Mind and Spirit

At The Good Shepherd, our philosophy extends beyond traditional mental health services to embrace a holistic approach to care, nurturing both the mind and spirit of each foster child we serve. We believe in treating the whole person, recognizing that emotional, psychological, and spiritual well-being are deeply interconnected. Our programs are designed to foster resilience, self-esteem, and personal growth, creating a foundation for lasting mental health. By integrating practices that promote spiritual wellness, such as mindfulness, meditation, and community connection, we aim to provide a comprehensive support system. This holistic care model ensures that every aspect of a child’s well-being is addressed, empowering them to heal, grow, and flourish in all areas of their lives, grounded in a sense of community and belonging.
