• -"Located on the campus of Belmont High School, the Belmont Wellness Center serves as a health and mental health center for students in the Downtown/Echo Park and surrounding communities. Asian Pacific Health Care Venture, Incorporated (APHCV) provides primary care for acute and preventative health care needs, including sports physicals, immunizations, family planning and health screening. APHCV serves children, adolescents and adults, and is open from Monday to Friday, from 8:30am-5:00pm. Staff at APHCV are also able to assist families with Insurance enrollment, and referrals to other service providers, with the support of the APHCV network.


    Since its grand opening in December 2012, the Belmont Wellness Center, operated by School Mental Health (SMH), has provided mental health services and medication support and management to students and families in the central region of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). SMH Psychiatric Social Workers (PSWs) provide clinic based services at the Belmont Wellness Center and the Roybal Learning Center Clinic. Field-based therapeutic services are provided at our mini-clinics located on the campuses of Glassell Park Elementary School, Marshall High School and Wadsworth Elementary School where there is also a school-based PSW. Additional field-based services are provided at several other campuses located throughout Local District Central, and are supported by MSW interns who are a part of our field instruction program. Utilizing an integrated, comprehensive, trauma-informed approach, SMH PSWs and MSW interns provide evidenced-based mental health services to address trauma, anxiety, depression and oppositional behavior through individual, group and family therapy.


    The Belmont Wellness Center has been working collaboratively with Sal Castro Middle School to ensure that all students impacted by the shooting incident last week receive mental health support at the Center or are referred to a community provider."
