Welcome to La Cheim!

For over 40 years, La Cheim has built a robust continuum of care to help kids and adults that no one else could reach. We provide educational and mental health services throughout Alameda and Contra Costa County at our nonpublic schools, community mental health center (including a PHP/IOP), therapeutic behavioral services program, and residential treatment center. 

Our uniqueness lies in the caliber and compassion of our team; teachers, art therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, RNs, social workers, MFTs, and mentors. They are the ones who create life-changing experiences with the people they serve.
