The Mental Health Walk-In Assessment Center (WIAC) serves adults and older adults, who are experiencing a mental health crisis or urgent need for mental health services.  The WIAC is a County of San Diego Behavioral Health contracted program, funded through the Mental Health Services Act.  Services are targeted to individuals with Medi-Cal and those who are medically indigent.

The goals of the program are to provide short-term mental health services to adults:

  • who are in need of crisis intervention services
  • who might otherwise present at emergency rooms for mental health services
  • who are waiting to connect to ongoing County Mental Health programs

Services include:

  • Assessment
  • Crisis intervention
  • Medication evaluation
  • Short-term case management
  • Linkage to community resources
