Community Mental Health Program
Outpatient Psychiatric Services - KITHS will provide a safe therapeutic space that is culturally and linguistically appropriate, trauma informed, and inclusive of the individual’s entire needs. KITHS Outpatient Psychiatric Services has a mission to ensure that vulnerable communities such as Asian Americans, immigrants and refugees have access to mental health care that is targeted to their unique needs. More specifically, the goal is to provide care that is inclusive of the individuals’ entire needs, which includes family, faith, and spiritual beliefs. Focusing on multiple domains of an individual’s life could decrease stigma associated with seeking mental health support. Thereby, increasing mental health use; this then promotes health, hope and resiliency among Asian Americans, immigrants, and refugees.
