Access Institute for Psychological Services
“Finding high-quality mental healthcare can be a challenge, even if you have the means,” says Bart Magee, PhD, executive director of Access Institute for Psychological Services. The Bay Area nonprofit he leads provides a safety net for those with the greatest need and least access to care, offering low- and no-fee treatment to people of all ages. The institute is also addressing the ongoing shortage of qualified mental healthcare providers in California by providing rigorous clinical training to the next generation of therapists dedicated to helping our community. Dr. Magee says, “Our independent model means we can be flexible and responsive—both in services and training—and we remain independent due to generous volunteer and donor support.”
"Securing psychological care for those most in need creates a ripple effect of healing that extends throughout San Francisco and beyond."
