How to Refer a Client Family to CCAP

  1. Send an email to Megan Geary or Joanna Garcia with the client's information.

  2. Families can also come to 37 Grove during normal business hours to check-in with CCAP staff.

Please don't send a client referral via Salesforce or via email to the entire CCAP team.

While we strive to serve as many families as we can with special consideration for families already working with Compass, it can take up to 4-5 days for us to get back to folks depending upon our caseload, so please also encourage families to access the other Family Access Points:

How to Refer a Client Family to CBHS
Therapy is available to any family enrolled in one of Compass's programs. Please make a referral for your client to Compass Behavioral Health Services through CoDa/Salesforce. (Find instructions here). If you have any questions about creating the referral or if you're wondering if you should make a referral, please consult with Susan, Claire or Erik.

Counselor of the Day

In-person and telephone crisis counseling is available to clients who need someone to talk to someone immediately (or as soon as possible). Please note that depending on the availability of a therapist or the language capacity of the client, it may take up to 24 hours to find a time to connect with your client.

 

There are 3 different ways for a client to request a Counselor of the Day crisis counseling session.

  1. Client can call (415) 644-0504 and leave a message saying that they would like to speak to a Counselor of the Day or a therapist.  

  2. Client can walk into CFRC and do an intake and request behavioral health support. We will have a therapist on site every day to support walk in requests.

  3. Staff member emails Susan with the subject line "COD needed". In the email, please provide client's full name, client phone number, and client's primary language. Do not email ALL CBHS.

If the client is experiencing severe psychiatric symptoms and needs help immediately, please inform your Program Director and email or call Susan at ext 2401.
