Serving our communities
for over 30 years

What's New

July is Minority Mental Health Awareness month.  Minority communities face unique challenges and disparities in accessing mental health care.  By raising awareness we advocate for culturally competent mental health care that meets the diverse needs of all individuals. We, at Persoma foster equity to ensure that everyone, regardless of background, receives the support that they deserve for their mental well-being.
