“You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you'll win, no matter what the outcome.”


Patch Adams

Find out why local agencies have shifted partnerships to San Diego-based SMA from institutional, nationwide and regional operators.  And why providers love working with us.


SMA knows you are challenged to find on-site mental health providers attuned to the unique demands of working with the population you serve. Assurance of a provider team who consistently deliver quality care in the current climate of mental health shortages are an increasing rarity.  A team with a wide local network of quality providers and a nationwide recruiting reach makes a difference.


Engaged providers who create a longitudinal fit with organizational needs are integral to the success of care.


Together we improve successful healthcare to complex and underserved populations along a continuum of upstream and downstream healthcare partners.
