Leading with Heart
ZSFG is on the front lines of mental and behavioral health care. Your support will enable innovation through programs like:
The Addiction Care Team (ACT) is an innovative program at ZSFG that connects the traditionally siloed medical care, addiction treatment, and community support to help address a patient’s Substance Use Disorder (SUD). ACT is staffed by a patient navigator, addiction medicine fellow, and a supervising physician that together provide a novel approach to addiction care that puts inclusion, dignity, and respect for the patient front and center.
The goal of forming an addiction medicine consult team is to decrease addiction severity, increase connections to treatment, decrease readmissions, decrease visits to the Emergency Department, and decrease acute healthcare costs.
Understanding the pressing need of linking communications and data-sharing between community health services and medical organizations is an additional goal the addiction care team aims to achieve throughout the San Francisco Health Network.
The Division of Infant, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (ICAP) is part of the Department of Psychiatry at ZSFG, providing quality, culturally tailored, and trauma-informed mental health services for youth (birth to age 24) and their families. As part of a comprehensive, coordinated approach to care across the developmental age spectrum, ICAP programs and services encompass clinic and community-based direct care and consultation services (within ZSFG clinics, daycares, schools, and other community-based settings), training, and research.
The needs of the patients who come to ZSFG day after day are often complex and multidimensional. Medical, social, and emotional needs can be triggered by homelessness, hunger, isolation, substance misuse, depression and mental illness. ZSFG has created a program called Social Medicine that consists of a multidisciplinary team of social workers, pharmacists, nurses, physicians, mental health specialists and other city agencies to address patients’ unique needs to create life-changing and transformative outcomes.
Citywide Case Management supports the recovery of San Francisco’s highest risk mentally ill adults and reduces their use of institutional and acute psychiatric care, while helping to maximize their ability to maintain stable, productive, fulfilling lives in the community.
An initiative of HIVE, Team LILY is a ZSFG-based roving care team providing wraparound services to pregnant people experiencing significant barriers to engagement in clinic-based prenatal care. Team LILY serves pregnant people with housing insecurity, active substance use, and/or mental health diagnoses.
This nationally-recognized program addresses mental health, legal issues, unemployment and housing to help patients break the cycle of violent injury. Since the inception of Wraparound, re-injury rates have been reduced by 50%.
Solid Start is an initiative to promote health and health equity for pregnant women and families with children 0 – 3 at ZSFG through innovative models of integrated care. This includes ensuring that the social, legal, mental health and behavioral needs of families are incorporated across care at ZSFG. The Solid Start initiative serves as an innovation hub for best practices, improved data collection and evaluation, care model dissemination within ZSFG, the broader San Francisco safety net, and regional and national communities.
The Trauma Recovery Center provides over 800 victims of trauma, assault, torture and violence with innovative psychiatric support services, including group work, victim’s self-help groups and one-on-one counseling. The TRC has had great success in helping many clients move forward with their lives after facing devastating and enduring trauma.
The ACE Unit is a geriatric-friendly environment designed to improve mobility, reduce depression, maximize overall satisfaction and help patients make a smooth transition from hospital to home life. Each patient’s needs are assessed by an interdisciplinary team of an advanced practical nurse, a social worker, a nutritionist, an occupational therapist.
The Vocational Rehabilitation Program (VRP) provides job readiness and job training for individuals recovering from chronic mental illness often complicated by persistent homelessness, substance abuse, chronic medical problems and criminal justice involvement. VRP currently provides vocational assessment and job training for hospital support roles and social enterprise businesses.
The Women’s Options Center prides itself on providing high-quality, evidencebased and comprehensive abortion and family planning services. The WOC is known for its ability and expertise in serving high-risk and medically complicated patients, offering long-term reversible contraceptive methods.
