"New Day, New Beginning"
At the Norooz Clinic Foundation, our mission is to remove the barriers and social perceptions that create stigmas about mental health. We strive to create pathways which illuminate the reality that mental health is a normal part of everyday life, and essentially overall happiness. Through personal exploration, specialized therapy, learning workshops, and groups we assist individuals by providing them with new coping methods and alternative patterns of thinking, in order to dismantle individual, relationship, family stressors, and difficulties. Our goal is to ensure each person is given empathy, understanding, and an environment without judgment in order to bring about positive change in their lives. We also organize events, such as our Unlocking Stigma: Cultural Art & Psychology Fair, to help promote mental health awareness through art and culture, which are two very important aspects that many people can relate to.
The Norooz Clinic Foundation is a non-profit public service and educational organization established in October of 2012. Norooz is a Farsi word meaning new day and a new beginning. At the Norooz Clinic Foundation we strive to assist those who walk through our doors with their journey of discovery to find their new day, their rebirth, through mental health and wellness. The Norooz Clinic Foundation focuses on building and maintaining healthy relationships by identifying common struggles and providing new ways to approach them with success. We teach our clients effective skills and tools in order to give them alternative ways to think about daily problems and stressors, and overcome them with more ease and balance. At our clinic, we treat anxiety, depression, marital dissatisfaction, anger, sexual dysfunction, and addiction. Our clinicians also specialize in treating traumas, relationship problems, domestic violence victims, grief and loss. To ensure affordability for all, we maintain sliding-scale fees, as well as offer pro bono therapy sessions and free training to our clients. Access to mental health is of paramount importance at the Norooz Clinic Foundation, that is why we ensure everyone is provided the opportunity to access our services through technology by connecting to therapeutical videos on our online streaming channel, TherapyCable.
