Mental Health

Mental health was identified as a community health priority by the Rancho Cucamonga residents during the Strategic Planning process. A focus on anxiety/stress, depression, and substance abuse including smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke was also identified. Residents shared that support services that are easily accessible, culturally appropriate, and free of stigma for all community members is important.
