Comunilife’s mental health services include both an outpatient mental health clinic and a range of housing options. Individuals residing in our housing are referred, as appropriate, to the Vida Guidance Center for the clinical treatments that will enable them to remain in the community. All clinical services incorporate Comunlife’s Multicultural Relational Approach for Diverse Populations, which integrates culturally appropriate information, sensitivity and awareness into clinical interventions with clients of diverse backgrounds.
