Family Advocate for Mental Health Services

Family Advocate In Short

County employees have a resource available through the Mental Health Department in the Family Advocate for Mental Health Services.

If your relative suffers from major mental illness and you are struggling to navigate the complex road of psychiatric services provided by Tulare County Department of Mental Health, there is help within reach.

The Family Advocate for mental health services cannot offer psychotherapy nor take the place of you, as family member. But, the tasks of clarifying eligibility for county mental health services, asking for resolution of a complaint or appeal, and referral to crisis assistance are among the services available from the Mental Health Family Advocate.

Linking family members to National Alliance on Mental Illness in Tulare County helps combat the isolation and lack of knowledge experienced by the family, initially. Finding and utilizing the resources geared toward the family member is the Family Advocate's specialty.

For further information about Tulare County Mental Health Family Advocate Services contact Luann Baldwin @ (559) 737-4660 X2346 or email her at Lbaldwin@Tulare
