Access Institute is proud to introduce you to our 2019-2020 class of postgraduate fellows. Whether serving clients at our Hayes Valley Clinic, working with children at seven public elementary schools, or providing comprehensive treatment to seniors at the Bayview Adult Day Health Center, our fellows are committed to making a positive impact on the mental health of our community. We asked the fellows what inspires their work, and have shared their responses below.

The transition to a New Year and decade prompts us to reflect on our lives and consider the state of our society. At Access Institute we’ve been pondering all of this and our hopes for the future. What kinds of advances, challenges, and changes in the mental health field did the recent decade produce? How do those developments match what we see more broadly in society? Are we doing everything we can to meet the needs of our communities?
