SafeSpace Center Services
We’re all about you — young people aged 12 to 26. We believe the best advocates for youth mental health are you yourselves. At our center, we work with people who want to make a difference in their community. Our youth board works with schools, communities, and peers to promote mental wellness and help create services and solutions that work for all young people. They speak out to make a difference and support all young people who struggle with mental health challenges.
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.
