Culturally Relevant Treatment

Pacific Clinics clients are diverse in age and ethnicity. All our programs are designed to be age-appropriate, culturally relevant and unique to the individual needs of each client.

Multicultural Services

We offer culturally and linguistically responsive services to address the needs of our diverse communities, making outreach and treatment more effective.

We also acknowledge that cultural taboos or fear of being labeled as mentally ill are real concerns for our clients. Through education, we strive to change minds and hearts so that those who need help can seek the care they need.

Some of our specialized programs include-

  • Asian Pacific Family Center (APFC): APFC provides programs in youth development, substance use and gang violence prevention, bicultural parenting education, family support, mental health counseling and treatment services. Other services include integrated physical health and mental health services, behavioral health outreach and education, mental health recovery and wellness peer support for adults. Services are provided in Cambodian, Cantonese, Chiu Chow, English, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, Taiwanese and Toi San and.
  • Latino Youth Program: Specializing in suicide prevention, the Latino Youth Program offers bilingual mental health services for school-aged youth and their families. Our services promote mental health wellness through outreach and engagement, training, substance use prevention or cessation and anti-stigma campaigns to address the high-risk factors that can lead to suicide.
  • Hye-Wrap (Armenian Wraparound Services): Hyre-Wrap began in 1996 as a school-based program to address the mental health needs of the newly immigrated Armenian youth who were at risk of dropping out of school. It has grown to serve children, youth and their families and adults with counseling, case management and linkage to support services.
