Information on Service Adjustments During the COVID-19 Emergency
HHS is the County’s largest department with more than 700 employees who work at many sites throughout Marin. Many HHS offices have reopened with limited staffing to the public. Staff will continue to provide services remotely when possible for safety reasons, and residents in need of HHS services should consider conducting conversations over the phone or email when possible. Please call ahead if you have an appointment or require in-person assistance.

Under direction of the Mental Health and Substance Use Division Medical Director, a half time child psychiatrist, two part time psychiatrists and a bilingual Spanish speaking mental health nurse practitioner provide assessments, prescriptions, and on-going medication support to approximately 150 individual children and youth. Some of these children are receiving therapy from agencies in the community and come to the county for medication support and others are referred from county programs.
Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS). As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
