The HOPE Program is a Mental Health Services Act funded program that provides intensive case management for people over the age of 60 and who are suffering from mental illness. The HOPE Program team uses a multi-disciplinary approach and is comprised of mental health practitioners, nurse practitioners, a public guardian and a psychiatrist.

Senior Peer Counseling is also for people over the age of 60 but the focus is on supporting those who would benefit from a little extra support in their life. Support is provided by trained volunteers who receive weekly supervision from a licensed MFT and/or Registered Nurse. Decreasing isolation, issues of aging, grief and depression are common issues addressed in Senior Peer Counseling.

Both The HOPE Program and Senior Peer Counseling are departments within Community Mental Health Services of the County of Marin. Both programs are offered in English and Spanish and are offered where the senior resides.
