Family Mental Health Navigator Project (FMHN)

This project, funded by the Presidio Giving Circle through the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, will develop, iteratively refine, and pilot test a Family Mental Health Navigator (FMHN) model aimed toward improving mental health service outcomes for publicly insured adolescents (ages 12-17).  Adolescents and their parents who seek pediatric primary care services at Zuckerberg SF General Hospital and are referred for behavioral health (mental health and substance use-related) services by their provider will be eligible to participate.  The navigator model will incorporate digital health technology to engage with youth and families and improve care coordination, tracking, and monitoring of  behavioral health service needs for these youth and families.
