Mental Health Clinic moving to Diamond Springs

The El Dorado County Mental Health Clinic, currently located at 670 Placerville Drive in Placerville, is moving to 768 Pleasant Valley Road, Suite 201, in Diamond Springs. The anticipated move date is Oct. 25, with clinic doors expected to be open for clients at the new location on Oct. 28. County Alcohol and Drug Program services now located at 670 Placerville Drive will also move to the new Diamond Springs site and be co-located with Mental Health services. Clinic and staff telephone numbers will remain the same.

“We are working hard to ensure a smooth transition during our move, with as little disruption in services as possible,” said Patricia Charles-Heathers, assistant director of El Dorado County Health Services. “The physical move of office furniture and computers will be completed over the weekend. We have also collaborated with the El Dorado County Department of Transportation to build a transit bus stop at the new site in Diamond Springs and are making additional plans to address transportation needs that may arise as a result of the move.”

According to Charles-Heathers, there are a number of benefits to the new Mental Health Clinic location including a larger space for the Clinic’s Wellness Center. “The Wellness Center is an area at our Mental Health Clinic where people with mental illness can come to receive support, participate in group activities and learn important and practical life skills,” said Charles-Heathers. “Our new location will include more room for the Wellness Center, a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and space for a garden. We believe these improvements will prove to be very beneficial to those who use the Wellness Center.”

Clients and family members with questions regarding the Wellness Center, Mental Health Clinic move or transportation needs are encouraged to speak with their case manager. Community members with general questions regarding the move may contact Laura Eakin at 530-621-6321 or Cynthia Kjellin at 530-642-7266. Mental Health is a division of the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency.

    Nothing but the Problem Plagued "Logan Building" with problems enumerated in 3 Grand Jury reports. Remote location that doesn't serve the community well.

    It's closer to me. Some might see that as a good thing.
