Center for Child & Youth Logo.jpg

The Center for Child & Youth Psychiatry (CCYP) utilizes telepsychiatry/telehealth and face-to-face practices at multiple locations throughout San Diego County to provide outpatient psychiatric evaluation and medication support services.


Services are available to children and youth who have successfully discharged from their outpatient mental health provider, yet have psychotropic medication needs that are too complex for their primary care physician and/or a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) to manage.

The Center provides linkage and facilitates access to psychotropic medication, including the administration of long-acting injectable psychotropic medication, when indicated and necessary for the youth’s stability.

Licensed Care Coordinators will provide case management and short-term crisis stabilization services, as needed. Nursing staff will be available to provide education, medication support and gather necessary medical information.
