South Asian Mental Health Initiative and Network, SAMHIN, is a non-profit that addresses the mental health needs of the South Asian community in the U.S. Our goal is to decrease the stigma and shame associated with mental illness and offer resources for people who seek help.
The SAMHIN provider network includes mental health professionals with a strong desire to provide counseling to the South Asian community. Search our provider directory by location, specialty, languages spoken, and more.
SAMHIN is very involved in the New Jersey community and is working to expand throughout the United States. We attend health fairs, conduct workshops, and participate in radio shows. See where you can find us at our upcoming events.
Opening Doors: Barriers to coming out in the South Asian culture
It can be difficult for LGBTQ+ individuals to discover and come out to their South Asian families, leading to stress and suppression of who they are. Watch a video with Dr. Sudha Wadhwani about the barriers to coming out within South Asian families.
As a non-profit organization, SAMHIN relies on the generous contributions of donors to help fund our valuable mental health programs. Sponsors at the Platinum level will be featured with a logo, website link, and short description of your company / organization. See sponsorship opportunities and benefits.
