“I have seen firsthand how delicate mental health is to an individual and to families. Mental Health is the one thing that can make or break each and every person on this planet. Having access to quality mental healthcare is something that all people should have,regardless of their socioeconomic status. I am passionate about Impact Mental Health and the mission to provide quality mental healthcare to the uninsured people in our community.”
My professional career has been dedicated to helping people solve problems and become valuable contributors to their organization. Impact Mental Health Clinic’s mission to provide people with the assistance they need to fulfill their potential as members of their families and communities is in keeping with that work. I am especially proud to be associated with IMH as it provides services to people who may otherwise not have access to the medical care they so need.

Paul Olavson PMHNP APRN
I have been involved in community mental health services throughout my professional career because of my interest in serving those in our community that would otherwise not have access to quality mental health services.

It has been a privilege to be involved in this venture with so many outstanding professionals and partners.
