Who We Are
APCTC takes a multi-disciplinary and culturally sensitive approach to address the psychological and social needs of our clients. Our mental health professionals work as a team to meet clients' needs, that may be compounded by language and cultural barriers. The goals of our teams are to provide effective treatment in order to reduce psychiatric symptoms, alleviate psychological distress, and to improve functioning levels. APCTC’s staff have an unmatched level of cultural competence and linguistic capabilities, that enable them to work effectively with clients who do not have access to or feel a lack of connection in mainstream healthcare settings. All clients are treated with respect and utmost regard for their dignity and privacy. APCTC is committed to continuing its pioneering tradition and strong leadership at the leading edge of providing culturally sensitive services. APCTC will continue to advocate for the mental health of our community and to systematically maintain and develop effective strategies to meet those needs.
