Ohana House

Learn about plans for Ohana House, a dedicated youth mental health center that will benefit young people, their families, and Monterey County for years to come.

What will Ohana House offer?

Every aspect of Ohana House is designed to provide a warm, welcoming facility for patients and their loved ones to access innovative care. The multipurpose building’s indoor and outdoor spaces support our mission of improving health, strengthening families, and treating illnesses as they arise.

Filling an urgent need for high-quality youth mental and behavioral health services in our community, Ohana House will include:

  • Crisis stabilization unit designed for up to five patients at a time needing round-the-clock support for 24 hours, including space for a parent to stay
  • Residential treatment, a camp-like environment with single rooms for up to 16 patients. Participants live onsite for several weeks building new skills and taking part in different activities, with family members visiting throughout
  • Partial hospitalization program for two-week blocks of time, serving six to 12 patients from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Intensive outpatient program for two-week blocks of time, serving six to 12 patients from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
  • Outpatient clinic open before and after school with the ability to offer ongoing care to up to 2,000 patients for months or years
  • Indoor and outdoor recreational areas and quiet spaces for reflection
  • Comfortable, private rooms for one-on-one and family counseling
  • Classrooms and spaces for community activities, workshops, and trainings

Groundbreaking and construction

Construction of Ohana House began in November 2020 in Monterey. The 55,600 square-foot facility is scheduled to open in spring 2023.
