Multidisciplinary teams of clinicians, psychiatrists, peers, staff and nurses provide services both in their San Francisco setting and in the field. Key to their success, according to Dr. Mitsuishi, is the welcoming environment. Their offices provide a serene setting to work with clients, ensuring a sense of stability and safety.

Clients seen at Citywide have a diagnosis of serious mental illness, are frequently dually diagnosed, and often have histories of trauma, chronic institutionalization and homelessness.

We honor Dr. Mitsuishi for her steadfast efforts to help California’s unhoused facing mental illness and substance use disorders.
