Oakes’ Clinical Training Program Philosophy and Goals

For over 60 years, Oakes Children’s Center has served children and families with emotional, behavioral, and educational difficulties by providing specialized educational and psychological services. Our mission is to help children develop the independence and self-awareness necessary to live and continue learning in the least restrictive setting possible. We are a non-profit mental health center located in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights/Mission District with the objective of providing services to all youth and families who seek them, including historically under-served populations who may not otherwise receive mental health services. The Oakes Children's Center Clinical Training Program, APA-accredited as of April 2020, provides comprehensive training to advanced practicum students, pre-doctoral interns in clinical psychology, and post-doctoral clinicians. Please use the links above to view full program descriptions.


Oakes Children’s Center is dedicated to providing education and mental health services to youth with emotional and/or developmental challenges and to their families, particularly in underserved communities.
