Lakeside Behavioral Healthcare is a private, not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charitable organization that provides comprehensive community behavioral healthcare services to the Orange County community. Lakeside has been serving the community for over 25 years.

Lakeside began as Mental Health Services of Orange County, a community-based agency formed when four local providers joined together in 1983. During this period of time, government funding for mental health services had been severely reduced. The goal of the merger was to make services as cost-effective as possible through more efficient use of program funding.

In 1991, Mental Health Services of Orange County adopted the name Lakeside Alternatives to reflect a major reorganization that included a new building, new leadership and new strategies to provide the best care at affordable costs. The organization's goal was and continues to be to provide the most effective, least restrictive level of care, and to create the most appropriate environment for independence and wellness for people living with mental illnesses and co-occurring substance use disorders.

In 2006, Lakeside Alternatives changed its name to Lakeside Behavioral Healthcare which more clearly reflects the focus of the services provided to the Orange County community.
