Support Haight Ashbury Psychological Services this Giving Tuesday!

We are at a time in our country and our world where access to mental health care is needed now more than ever. With issues ranging from everyday life stress to disturbing and upsetting world events, people are finding it harder to cope in our society. Yet, mental health care is harder and harder to reach, especially for those without financial means.

Haight Ashbury Psychological Services  (or "HAPS") has worked for 39 years to improve the lives of people in the San Francisco Bay Area community by providing sliding scale psychotherapy to those in need, and education, training, and supervision to those who serve.

Low-fee Vital Counseling Services

We help clients every day with issues like depression, anxiety, relationships, family, past abuse and life transitions. Services are tailored to fit each client rather than a one size fits all approach. We are one of the lowest sliding scale clinics, which means the client’s fee is based on their income. With almost 40 years of operation, HAPS has helped thousands of clients who otherwise may not have had access to therapy.

As one client shared, “I am so grateful to be able to afford therapy here at HAPS and have such an outstanding therapist.  My life is changing for the better each week and my self discovery and self acceptance grows deeper than ever. Thank you.” 

Training the Next Generation of Therapists

Each year, we work with up to 15 interns from masters and doctoral programs from schools all over the Bay Area. We are highly respected in the psychological community, and our internship/training program is highly competitive. Each intern carries a caseload of 8-10 clients and receives supervision and training throughout their placement at HAPS. That's almost 600 trained interns over the years who then go on to become licensed therapists helping many more individuals in our community.

One intern shared “I interned at HAPS and have to say it was THE critical element to helping me become a competent and confident psychotherapist.”

Please consider a donation to this crucial San Francisco organization.  

Your donation will help to "future-proof" HAPS by keeping client fees low and ensuring we can continue to serve our community for years to come.

 Please help us meet our stretch goal of $20,000 this Giving Tuesday! Your donation is tax deductible.
