The Transcultural Clinic, also known as T.C.C., is a mental health
outpatient clinic for the Southeast Asian community in San Joaquin County.
There are approximately 25,000 Southeast Asian refugees in San Joaquin
County. This represents nearly 5 per cent of the total county population.
The first refugees from Southeast Asia began arriving in 1975. The largest
influx of new arrivals took place in the early part of the 1980's. The
mental health needs of this growing population led to the establishment of
the Transcultural Clinic as part of San Joaquin County Mental Health
Tragic events produced involuntary displacement and the refugee status of
these new arrivals to our community. This upheaval resulted in the need to
address specific mental health issues.
The Transcultural Clinic treats approximately 900 clients. Treatment is
provided for a many different mental health disorders, including
depression, post traumatic stress disorder and schizophrenia.
