What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

One in five members of our Napa County neighbors identify needing help with a mental health issue every year. That's enough to fill our local high school stadium over 4 times. In 2017, a comprehensive community health needs assessment indicated Mental Health as the No. 1 issue in Napa County. We have also seen a substantial increase in need across all age groups for mental health treatment due to multiple incidences of natural disasters, violence and fear of deportation. In addition, we have witnessed a rise in need for mental health services for teens and young adults. Currently, one in four teens and young adults report depression related feelings. That number is double the size of one of our local high schools.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to assist Napa County residents that are low income, uninsured, and lack access to mental health care, meaning; they have no other option to receive mental health treatment services and would otherwise go unserved. Without Mentis, many Napa County residents would be unable to access essential help with reducing their level of depression and anxiety that is significantly disrupting their daily functioning, causing emotional distress, and adversely impacting their families and their ability to work. Mentis has defined strategic objectives: easy and affordable access to care (no barriers), prevention and early intervention related to risk factors, thorough assessment and evaluation, coordination of care, and targeted/effective interventions that achieve results. In FY 2022-23 Mentis provided services for over 4,200 individuals, couples and families. In FY 2023-24 our goal is to increase this by 10%.

We employ a strategic process for maximum benefit for our clients.
Intake coordinator who completes a psychosocial evaluation at first contact with client to gather background information, reasons for seeking treatment, and assess for risk factors, such as self-harm ideation. At this time, she also refers clients to any other needed resources or services.
• Clients are referred to a therapist in a timely manner, she completes a comprehensive assessment using the symptom measurement tools referenced above and develops individualized treatment goals with the client based upon what they seeking help for and what they want to achieve from coming to therapy. Clients are empowered and expected to full participate in their own therapy and process of change and healing, which includes homework assignments.
• For adults with anxiety and depression, the clinician engages in a therapeutic process with the client using CBT, an empirically supported approach to reduce symptoms and increase functioning. For clients with depression the practice includes identifying and responding to thoughts and behaviors that contribute to and maintain depression. Clients learn to monitor mood and situations that trigger automatic thoughts, underlying beliefs, and problematic behaviors. For clients with anxiety, they often have excessive and pervasive fear and worry about a number of events or activities with little ability to control their fears and worries. This anxiety process often has a wide range of mental, emotional, and physical symptoms that affect health. Our therapists help clients to control their anxiety by learning coping skills and tools that help them to effectively manage their symptoms, cognitively, behaviorally, and physically.
• Part of our therapeutic approach is for the therapist to draw upon client strengths as well as coordinate care with other people, professionals, or service providers that are part of the client’s support network.
• Throughout the therapy process clinicians are constantly evaluating client progress, which culminates in measuring symptoms at the end of treatment and comparing progress made as a result of receiving the service. Treatment length is typically 8-15 sessions, with clients being seen on a weekly basis for 50-60 minutes. The actual length of treatment varies per client and can be extended beyond 15 sessions in order to ensure that we achieve the outcome that we are seeking with each person. The expectation is that when clients complete tr

Mentis strength as an organization is rooted in the clinical expertise and experience of is staff. Its team of 22 competent, mental health professionals, is committed to meeting the mental/emotional needs of vulnerable members of our community and moving them toward an improved state of wellness and functionality. Mentis is able to offer all of its services in both English and Spanish to meet local needs, given that 50% of its clinical staff are bilingual and bicultural. According to valid and reliable clinical outcome measures, between 75-80% of clients (significantly higher than the national average) have demonstrated a reduction in symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma, and stress. To ensure the continued success of the services Mentis offers to the community, significant resources are allocated each year for ongoing training, supervision, and consultation.

1. Client Growth

2. Client Impact
According to our pre and post measurement for this time period, between 75-80% of our clients have demonstrated a reduction in symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma, and stress; meaning we are making a tangible impact in the lives of the people we serve and moving them toward improved health.
3. Unrestricted Reserve.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
