We are pleased to announce structural changes to meet the demand of additional services offered.

The Agency has recently won two competitive bids to provide expanded crisis services. Specifically, the provision of Mobile Crisis Services for the County of San Luis Obispo and a new Crisis Stabilization Unit in Nevada County.

This exciting growth, combined with the the quality provision of existing services, requires strong support and expertise. In order to continue our success, the following two positions have been created within the Agency’s management and administrative structure:

Ben Lopez has been named Director of Crisis Services for Sierra Mental Wellness Group.

Ryan Walsh is the General Manager of Crisis Services for the Agency.

Thank you for your continued support of the Agency and it’s exemplary team. The management and staff of Sierra Mental Wellness Group look forward to our new endeavors with excitement and hope for lasting impact on these communities.


New Service Available

April 9, 2015 in WordPress CMS

Sierra Mental Wellness Group is now offering Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) by a Level II trained EMDR practitioner in our Roseville office.

Studies have consistently found that EMDR effectively decreases or eliminates the symptoms of post traumatic stress for the majority of clients.

The national registry (NREPP) of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), cites EMDR as evidence based practice for the treatment of PTSD, anxiety and depression symptoms.

Research has shown that EMDR can be an efficient and rapid treatment, and we are proud to offer this new service to the clients that we serve.

Don’t hesitate to contact Sierra Mental Wellness Group for more information and to assess if EMDR may be an appropriate treatment for you or your loved one.
