The field of mental health is rapidly evolving during these very exciting and unique times we live in. Most prominently, we are getting to know more about the neuroscience of brain networks and the mind-body intimate connections. We are also simultaneously appreciating that psychiatric conditions are not inherently ubiquitous in every culture, nor are they universal in how they manifest. This is why at APC we strive to deliver a state of the art trauma and culturally informed psychiatric service to our patients. We meet people where they are, listen to their narrative, understand their needs and help formulate a path to healing with them. We do that by celebrating our cultural roots as we destigmatize and treat mental illness.
We offer telepsychiatry consultations for PCPs who might need more guidance on psychopharmacology.
We offer long term telepsychiatry care for children, adolescents and adults under the age of 65.
We offer psychotherapy for adults and motivated teenagers who are help seeking.
We offer educational seminars in Arabic and English about various topics relating to mental health.
