Our passion for the North County community extends far beyond treating a medical condition, we care about the overall well-being of you and your family. This is why we’ve developed a variety of community programs designed for your specific needs.

 

Golden Years Program

NCHS hosts a social support group for Hispanic adults who are depressed or have symptoms of depression. Our participants are given the opportunity to socialize, engage in arts and crafts, learn about community resources, become self-sufficient, learn new skills to cope with life stressors, and have the opportunity to share their life experiences.
