World-Class Care for Children & Their Families

A major gift from an anonymous donor is making it possible to build a national center for excellence in the treatment of pediatric and adolescent mental health, one that includes clinical care, research, and training in a single world-class facility.

Located in San Francisco’s burgeoning Dogpatch neighborhood, the center will house both outpatient services and research space, bringing together clinicians and researchers from multiple disciplines to address the most pressing needs in psychiatry, psychology, and related fields. In addition to providing state-of-the-art services to Bay Area adults and children, the center will pioneer a more holistic approach to mental health that includes prevention and community outreach, the integration of pediatric and adult medicine with psychiatric care, and the development of novel and improved treatments.

The building’s design and sustainable elements support this holistic approach, providing a positive connection to the community that helps normalize behavioral health care. Its human scale connects the building to the street, and the building materials have been purposefully selected to reflect the texture, color, and character of the neighborhood. A central atrium allows daylight to penetrate deep into the building, maintaining a calming connection to nature, and a new roof deck provides landscaped outdoor space for reflection and celebration. The building’s water system includes integrated storm management, lessening its impact on the environment.

SKS is working in a joint venture with the Prado Group to develop this building under a long-term lease with UCSF.
