DBH Welcome Statement for About Us Webpage

The Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health’s Inclusion Statement

Fresno County is a richly diverse community, and in order to support and serve ALL persons in our community, the Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health is dedicated to ensuring an inclusive overall system of care through a commitment to equity, diversity, and affirming care. We are dedicated to providing quality, culturally responsive services that promote wellness, recovery and resilience for individuals and families whom we serve.

It is imperative for us to protect and improve the lives of Fresno County residents served by the Department and our partners in our system of care by acknowledging the long standing historic and on-going inequities that black, indigenous and people of color, those living in poverty and other marginalized and underserved communities have experienced with the behavioral health system.

We place a great deal of importance in having Behavioral Health system of care team members who value lived experience, are reflective of our community  and have the expertise to ensure our workforce is culturally and linguistically responsive and maximizes our diversity to render quality services in the most responsive, affirming and caring manner possible for the persons we serve. 

Our Vision

Health and well-being for our community.

Our Mission
