"It is my belief that no one working with suffering youth, adults and families should become immune to the realities of complex trauma, mental illness and hardship … Investing in those who suffer is truly the most rewarding experience when you realize your impact on those less fortunate."

-Anna Gleason / CEO

Our mission is to provide youth, adults, and families with a foundation for healthy, lasting relationships by fostering positive changes within themselves through an environment of inclusion, compassion, and support.

Nonprofit Mental Health Agency

Summitview is a private, nonprofit organization licensed by the State of California to provide a variety of mental health services to children and families. We offer outpatient mental health, wraparound, residential treatment, and special education services for adolescent boys and girls, as well as a home specializing in working with sex-trafficked youth. Although we treat a variety of psychological problems and symptoms, the residential treatment program specializes in treating adolescent boys and girls who are suicidal and engage in self-harm behavior. In addition, we provide mental health services to adults with mental illnesses in El Dorado County.

 

 

Nonprofit Non-Public School

Summitview Academy is the educational component of Summitview Child & Family Services, Inc.

Summitview Academy also offers a Vocational Skills Coach in addition to a comprehensive Independent Living Skills curriculum as well as extracurricular activities such as art, sports, music, and academic clubs, to the extent that they are consistent with each pupil’s IEP.
