About Us

Nueva Vista Family Services (NVFS) is a community-based outpatient mental health program which provides a full range of services to seriously emotionally disturbed (SED) children, youth and their families in the South Region of San Diego. 

Program Description

NVFS utilizes the family systems and wraparound approach.  Dependent upon the funding source, and to address the diverse needs of each family, we provide clinic, school or community-based services.  Clinic-based services are provided to AB2726, SED Healthy Families and those families who participate in shared cost or fees which are based upon their income.  School and community-based services are provided to clients who meet the eligibility requirements and are funded through Medi-Cal or the Mental Health Services Act.   NVFS is dual diagnosis capable and culturally sensitive to the community in which it serves, with over 50% of staff being bi-lingual and bi-cultural. NVFS utilizes the team approach, following the Children's Mental Health Service System of Care Philosophy and Principles (CSOC) guidelines, emphasizes a strength-based collaboration among family, therapist, social services, school, community, and medical services in the assessment, planning, and delivery of all services.
