Las Encinas Mental Health Hospital is Here to Support our Community


A Message from Las Encinas Hospital

June 4, 2020

During these times of civil unrest coming on the heels of several months of pandemic quarantine, we at Las Encinas Hospital recognize that our country is hurting.  We see many of our communities wrestling with recent events and past wrongs moving in the best path forward to have their voices heard.  We see the impacts that our present and future youth can make on our destiny and we are humbled by their passion.    

As a national behavioral healthcare system, we stand in solidarity with and support all those effected by recent events, especially our employees and patients.  We will continue to service and provide support to the communities we serve and anyone seeking to make changes.  We denounce those who participate in intolerance, division, and infringement on the rights of others.

Las Encinas sees this as a time to take a stand, listen, and support those who are championing efforts to eradicate systemic injustice and inequality.  We know that this conversation needs to last, solutions will need to be sought, and healing and hope will have to begin.  We ask that others in our field, the communities that surround our hospitals, and throughout our nation, join us and commit to lasting and sustainable change. 

Let us strive for hope and healing while building communities where everyone thrives.  In doing so, we invite others to help lift up those in our communities that are struggling and feeling pain.  To seek out those who need assistance, support, and comfort.  To find those who are lonely, isolated, and disconnected.  To console those who are hurting, suffering and alienated.  To serve as advocates for those who have been historically underrepresented, marginalized, and underserved.  To work toward being a country that is less divisive and more inclusive. 

Las Encinas also sees this as an opportunity to improve itself by representing these values internally through building a culture of diversity, inclusiveness and equity, championing causes in the communities that promote this culture, and advocating for those who have the most needs.  We feel that companies like us must dedicate themselves to getting their values right, so that our communities will thrive and ensure a culture where there is justice for all.  Join us and let’s get it right!

Las Encinas Hospital's Response to Covid-19

March 17, 2020

Las Encinas Hospital has been monitoring the daily events surrounding the COVID-19 virus and complying with guidance from the CDC and our state and local public health departments. While we maintain our commitment to high quality and compassionate care, we are keenly aware that we must protect and maintain a safe treatment environment for our patients, family members, and staff. We are here to support and protect each other. As such, we have implemented the following procedures/restrictions, effective as of 3/17/2020.

  1. Upon entering our building all employees, family members, vendors, and patients will be asked specific questions about their current healthcare status, including signs and symptoms of any upper respiratory conditions. This brief questionnaire may also include a temperature scan.
  2. Outpatient services will continue as normal, but patients will be queried about symptoms and may be scanned for temperature.
  3. We are unfortunately cancelling visitation to our hospital and will set up telephonic or virtual visits to keep you and your loved ones engaged.
  4. All family meetings will be held telephonically. Staff will coordinate these appointments with family members.
  5. All vendors will be asked to enter through the employee entrance and screened for temperature. Vendor access will be limited and at the discretion of hospital management.

Las Encinas Hospital strives to keep everyone who has entrusted their care to us in the safest environment possible. As information changes, we will update these procedures. We appreciate your understanding as we respond to these challenges and take utmost care for all of our patients.

Suicide Help through The Jason Foundation

At Las Encinas Recovery Center, we are dedicated to making a difference in our community by helping individuals improve and maintain their mental health. One method of achieving this goal is educating the public about the resources that are available to them, such as through The Jason Foundation.

Youth suicide is a rising epidemic in the US. The Jason Foundation addresses this epidemic through various educational resources, including training programs for law enforcement, teachers, and clergy.

One such educational resource available to all is their app, “A Friend Asks.”

“A Friend Asks”

This free smartphone app was created by The Jason Foundation with the intent of providing the public with access to tools and resources that can help yourself or others who may be experiencing thoughts of suicide. “A Friend Asks” allows you to learn more about warning signs, how to help your friends, the B1 program, and other useful information that can prove priceless for the prevention of suicide.

The app is available now for both Android and iPhones.

If you need to talk to a crisis counselor, you can text “Jason” to 741741.
