We know it takes courage to ask for help.
We are the SafeSpace you might need. A place where you can be heard and really seen, not judged. A place where you know you are not alone. You are respected for who you are. It takes huge courage to reach out, and that’s why we created this SafeSpace for you.
Welcoming, accepting, supportive, safe.
SafeSpace Center Services
We’re all about you — youth aged 12 to 26. We share the same goals. To help you thrive and emotionally connect with your family, friends, and life.

We’re developing youth-inspired-and-created centers in your community, programs that provide early access to support services, awareness of mental health challenges and greater community engagement, including school programs.
SafeSpace Menlo Park Center is comprised of the following three locations. 708 Oak Grove Ave is our Community Engagement Center. 1162 and 1166 El Camino Real offer clinical services through our affiliate partner BACA.
