Our Mission

SafeSpace is a non-profit dedicated to revolutionizing the way young people get early access to mental health services. SafeSpace is a friendly place for youth to go, to get confidential help from someone who will listen and not judge them.




Where We Are

SafeSpace’s initial center is located near schools in downtown Menlo Park. Clinical services will be provided by BACA, a SafeSpace center affiliate.



Meeting Youth Where They Are

Youth Oriented

SafeSpace is designed for youth by youth to provide a comfortable, welcoming place to enter to speak to someone who will listen and help youth at the first sign they aren't feeling like themselves. At the SafeSpace Center, BACA clinicians will listen and discuss a game plan to get the individual moving forward. Our affiliate BACA will provide therapists, group therapy and family therapy. We understand that reaching out for assistance to achieve mental wellness can be scary and stigmatized and that is why we are developed a youth advisory board to learn from and build a program that is meaningful and comfortable for teens and young adults.

The Youth Advisory Board will promote SafeSpace through school clubs, community outreach at youth events such as school sporting events, theater productions, etc. Youth will have a major impact on the awareness and utilization of services through student, teacher and parent forums at school functions and communications, as well as the design of the centers.
