Mind Clinic was started to help support and destigmatize mental health in the communities we serve to continue with Shifa’s mission to serve Sacramento’s diverse and underserved community.
Shifa Community Clinic has started a specialty clinic called Mind Clinic to create an open dialogue for patients to discuss their mental health. It is set where patients can feel comfortable approaching physicians, psychiatrists, and psychotherapists about the topic instead of forcing them to have a taboo conversation within their communities.
Patients are referred to Mind Clinic during their primary clinic visit. Mind Clinic also offers resources to patients and does various projects as well.
