About This Resource
APDC’s Behavioral Health Clinic provides a variety of services to clients who represent a wide range of mental health issues from brief, transitory conditions to the more acute and chronic psychiatric symptoms and disorders. Services are tailored to address the needs of immigrant and refugee status clients. Issues involving cultural adjustments, such as language, values, customs, and behavioral differences, are often intimately associated with the client’s chief complaint. Our current enrolled clients are primarily, but not limited to, Asian persons from Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, China, Japan, Korea, Laos, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. As a specialty clinic, APDC has behavioral health care services that are typically provided in the clients’ native language with bilingual staff who share the same cultural background as that of the client. Staff are embedded in their respective communities and many are considered community leaders. They are trained and experienced with both mainstream systems, and the cultural adaptations that must be made, i.e. they are “cultural brokers”. The agency takes the role of “bridge” between various systems and the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. APDC provides culturally competent, community-based, and consumer-driven services to adults, children, adolescents, and seniors.
