Turning Point Coloma Center

Jennifer Wellenstein, Program Director

Placer County

Turning Point Coloma Center provides intensive services to adults in Placer County with significant mental health challenges. This Full Service Partnership reduces the need for hospitalization or contact with the criminal justice system, and reduces homelessness.

A multidisciplinary team including marriage and family therapists, social workers, rehabilitation experts a family advocate, a youth advocate, peer support specialists, a nurse, and a psychiatrist provide medication support services, housing and employment assistance. Services focus on the individual/family, use a strength-based approach, intensive forensic interventions within the recovery model philosophy, outreach services, and include multi-agency coordination and joint planning.

This program also offers services to transition age youth groups for clients who are 18 to 25 years old, and intensive services for adults ages 26 to 59, and older adults 60+. This program also serves 16 and 17 year old youth when directly referred from Placer County Children's System of Care.
