Mentis, a local mental health resource provider, has received a $250,000 gift from Kaiser Permanente towards its new centralized mental health and wellness campus .

The new campus, located at 1272 Hayes Street in Napa, formerly the site of Blue Oak Middle School, boasts 13,000 square feet — over 10,000 more than the current Mentis headquarters.

The space will expand programs for all ages and offer youth-focused art and wellness spaces, serving as a centralized hub for mental health resources, from prevention to treatment.

“We’re proud to support the Mentis Wellness Campus, increasing access to essential prevention and treatment services, particularly for those facing barriers to mental health care," said Darryl Curry, Senior Vice President and Area Manager for Kaiser Permanente Napa Solano, in a press release.

In 2022, Kaiser Permanente's Community Benefit program invested over $1 billion in initiatives improving social determinants of health and access to services for Northern California residents.

Contributions from Napa Valley Vintners, a sizeable grant from the state of California, and a few other notable donors are shaping up the funding for the new mental wellness campus that is well underway.

Mentis will continue fundraising this year to reach the total project cost of $14 million, aiming to open the new space in early 2025.
