The Health Information Specialist maintains client files and is responsible for submitting the mental health billing for all clients within the SLO Mental Health Clinic. Health Information Specialists compile, update, and organize all documentation for the clients within the program, in collaboration with clinicians and counselors. The clinic offers specialty mental health and counseling services to children and families touched by adoption, foster care, relative caregiving, or legal guardianship. Seneca's clinics include a variety of therapeutic services and group counseling to children 0-21 years of age and their families.
