The Edgewood Program provides OT services to youth, ages 12 and up, who are receiving residential mental health treatment through the Hospital Diversion Program, as well as youth in the Partial Hospitalization Program, at Edgewood. OT groups aim to develop self-awareness and build skills through activities focused on emotional regulation, coping skills, social skills, the exploration of leisure activities, and communication skills.


The School-Based Program at OTTP-SF provides mental health services to youth with Medi-Cal insurance in San Francisco. Services are tailored to each student's needs and desires, and include individual occupational therapy and/or psychotherapy, ERMHS, case management, collateral and family support, family therapy, and psychiatric support with our nurse practitioner. The bulk of services under this program are provided in-school, however, based on the client's preferences and goals, services can be provided in the home or the community as well.
