about crestwood San Francisco

Crestwood’s San Francisco Healing Center is a Mental Health Rehabilitation Center (MHRC) located in San Francisco and overlooking the beautiful Golden Gate Park.

The campus is located on the 5th floor of St. Mary’s Medical Center and is the first Crestwood program in the City of San Francisco.  This groundbreaking program represents a collaboration between healthcare and municipal leadership, including UC San Francisco, Dignity Health, the San Francisco Mayor’s Office, San Francisco Public Health, San Francisco Behavioral Health and Crestwood.

The campus’ innovative program is based on Crestwood’s commitment to providing mental health clients a continuum of care that puts them on the road to recovery.  San Francisco Healing Center employs certified peer providers to help lead their clinical treatment team.  The campus’ clients participate in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a modified cognitive-behavioral treatment that is the only Evidence-Based Practice to prevent suicide.  DBT assists clients in learning skills to help them regulate their emotional responses to situations that occur in their lives. Clients also create and maintain a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP).  WRAP is a self-help, recovery treatment system designed to decrease symptoms, increase personal responsibility and improve quality of life.  The facility also provides a versatile array of classes for clients to participate in during their recovery program,
