Malage LeBlanc on Access & Accessibility

"I came to Felton because it has a division serving the Deaf community that also offers mental health services.” — Malage LeBlanc

Felton has always understood that equitable access to quality Mental Health services is paramount. Our commitment is reflected in the breadth of our behavioral health services and the diversity of populations served.

Beyond access, what we must consider is the client-end experience once they’ve attempted to reach services. That is, what does it look like and how does it feel accessing services given a client’s particular demographic and/or lived experience. This is something Malage LeBlanc, Case Manager for Felton Institute’s Deaf Community Counseling Services (DCCS), thinks about often. 





New Location in SOMA!

Felton Institute recognized Mental Health Awareness Month by celebrating the opening of our new location in SOMA, San Francisco; housing four Justice Service Division programs and our Full Circle Family Program (FCFP).

The new location expands our mental health services making them more equitable and accessible for residents typically underserved by the mental health system.

"We are thrilled to meet the challenge of these extraordinary times by expanding our capacity to serve this community with this new clinic."

— Al Gilbert, Felton President & CEO

Support Suicide Loss Survivors

Have you lost someone to suicide? Your experience may help others.

One way to support those grieving a person who has died by suicide is through the help and hope of a LOSS Team. A LOSS Team is composed of individuals who have themselves endured the challenges of losing a person to suicide.

Members of the LOSS Team are available to provide postvention support and resources to bereaved loved ones after a sudden loss to suicide.

A LOSS team brings compassion to action and can instill HOPE to those impacted by suicide.

To Apply: Contact LOSS Program Coordinator, Sophia Balestreri, at Sbalestreri@felton.org or call (415) 726 –4685 to request an interview.
