Events and Information
January is Cervical Health Awareness Month - Cervical Health Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about how women can protect themselves from HPV (human papillomavirus) and cervical cancer. HPV is a very common infection that spreads through sexual activity, and it causes almost all cases of cervical cancer.
About 79 million Americans currently have HPV. Many people with HPV don’t know they are infected. And each year, more than 11,000 women in the United States get cervical cancer.
The good news?

Honoring the Life and Service of Dr. Jefferson Nerney
We are deeply saddened by the unexpected and untimely passing of Dr. Jefferson Nerney, Psy.D. on Wednesday November 21, 2018. He will forever be remembered at RCMS for his charisma, infectious positivity, and ability to brighten peoples day. We were honored to have known and worked side-by-side with Jeff.
Jeff was born in 1949 in San Francisco, a city which he loved dearly. Growing up he was a great athlete but his passion for music led him down the path of becoming a musical producer in the 1960’s. Through that experience Jeff developed close friendships that he would forever cherish. Jeff received his Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree from the Wright Institute in 2002.
He worked in several areas in the field of mental/behavioral health including forensic assessment for the Board of Parole. He joined the RCMS family in July of 2012 and was instrumental in implementing the integration of Behavioral Health services into Primary Care services.
Jeff loved our coastal community and was so happy to be settled on the coast, making a home with his Sweetie Pie… his beloved cat, Charlie the spaniel, and the love of his life, Jacqueline Lappe.
Jeff embraced life, adored his friendships, and approached humanity with a generous open heart. We will always remember him singing in the halls of RCMS, bringing rays of light and smiles.
We would like to acknowledge the tremendous loss to our community and our patients. While we are in the process of reaching out to individual patients we would also like to provide a list of other behavioral health providers on the coast as a courtesy to anyone in need of immediate services. This list does not constitute an endorsement by RCMS and individuals are encouraged to do more research on anyone they may contact. In addition, residents of Mendocino County can utilize Redwood Community Crisis Center – 1-855-838-0404 – 24/7 Crisis line – they have a multi-disciplinary team of staff who provide emergency mental health assessments to Mendocino County Consumers.
1-800-555-5906 – 24/7 Access Line – Assisting Consumers in linking to appropriate services, provide information on grievance and fair hearing procedures and more.

Phone Scam Warning
RCMS will never cold call you or ask for personal information over the phone. A patient recently informed us that they received a call from someone soliciting donations for RCMS and attempted to obtain their credit card information. These calls are not from us. If any company calls you and asks for your personal information, that is a red flag and you should immediately alert your phone carrier company.
