“I have seen first hand 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 health care 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 health care to the uninsured people in our community.”

“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.

“My commitment to IMH stems from how it overcomes many challenges faced by people who desperately need psychiatric care.

IMH overcomes these barriers with high-quality services at no cost to the patient, while training future clinicians in community psychiatry.”
