The Santa Clara Department of Psychiatry is comprised of a main campus at 19000 Homestead Road in Cupertino, that houses Adult Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry, and a Chemical Dependency Recovery Program (CDRP). Additionally, there are three satellite clinics that provide mental health services at convenient locations within the community. The residency program utilizes the main campus at Cupertino for postdoctoral training, where two residents train on the child team, one trains on the adult team and one trains in CDRP.

The Departments of Adult and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Cupertino are housed in an outpatient clinic, which provides diagnostic, therapeutic and consultation services to Kaiser Members. In addition, we also support other departments within the Kaiser Medical Center with consultation and educational services. We also partner closely with the Chemical Dependency Recovery Program (CDRP) on cases where Dual Diagnosis is a question. While initial intake is done on an individual family basis and family therapy is provided, we also provide play therapy and individual therapy as well as an extensive array of group programs for kids and parents.

In addition, the clinic provides an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to those children and teens who have been recently hospitalized or those who would otherwise require hospitalization. The staff members comprise a wide spectrum of theoretical orientations—analytic, behavior modification, family systems and narrative to name a few. The Department of Child Psychiatry‘s professional staff includes approximately 3 full-time psychiatrists, 2 nurses, 7 psychologists, 7 social workers and 3 MFTs.

All clinics of Santa Clara Psychiatry are fast-paced, providing diagnostic, therapeutic, and consultation services to Kaiser Members as well as support to other departments within the Kaiser Medical Center with consultation and educational services.

Clinical staff partner closely with the Chemical Dependence Recovery Program (CDRP) on cases where Dual Diagnosis is a question. Kaiser adult psychiatry provides short-term therapy in a multi-disciplinary setting. The clinic also offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to those adults who have been recently hospitalized or to those who would otherwise be at great risk for hospitalization.

Postdoctoral residents in adult, and child and adoloscent psychiatry and CDRP work 40 hours/week and are involved in a wide variety of activities including intake evaluations, providing on-going therapy, crisis evaluations, management of their growing case load, co-leading  groups, and completing psychological assessments. In return, they are afforded an outstanding training and supervision program which includes individual supervision, group supervision, and weekly didactic training with other post-doctoral residents in the South Bay Consortium.
