Docs For Mental Health

Docs For Mental Health

We are two psychiatrists passionate about mental health. After identifying various factors adversely affecting mental health in our small community, we decided more had to be done to support individuals and families in need.

We have grown into a group of physicians and healthcare workers who are passionate about this cause.

Every year we identify a different area of need. Our goal is to generate funds to support to support relevant research and resources.

We generate funds by participating in endurance events being sponsored by our generous donors. Through this we create awareness, focus on education, ultimately reducing stigma.

Our focus for 2021 is the opioid crisis.

Countless lives are lost on a daily basis due to this pandemic. More research and resources are desperately needed as families continue to lose loved ones.

We believe that everything is possible if we choose to apply our minds
