Programs and Organizational Structure

AHP is a program of the Department of Psychiatry of the University of California, San Francisco and one of the six divisions of the Department of Psychiatry at San Francisco General Hospital. (However, AHP gets no direct programmatic support from the university.) AHP is also an affiliated program of the UCSF AIDS Research Institute. UCSF is the only medical school ranked in the top five U.S. institutions for both primary care and research, and the UCSF AIDS program is ranked first in the United States.

We have organized our website to reflect the needs of our constituents: community members, clients, providers, researchers, and donors and supporters, as well as staff. The website sections—LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer,) HIV, Provider Training & Education, and Research—are not necessarily the names of the AHP units and programs that actually provide our services. This page offers an overview of AHP through its organizational structure—a catalog of units and programs:

Psychiatry, Assessment, Crisis, and Triage Services (PACTS)
ASAP (AIDS and Substance Abuse Program) Counseling and Case Management Services
Psychosocial Support and Prevention Services Program (PSPS)
