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.
Drinking problems are more common in South Asians than most people would like to believe and admit. There are myths associated with the use of alcohol. For example, the common misconception: “Beer is not really alcohol!” Myths and misconceptions are major barriers to help-seeking. Watch Dr Tulasi Goriparthy (GT) talk about the cycle of addiction.
As a non-profit organization, SAMHIN relies on the generous contributions of donors to help fund our valuable mental health programs. We invite you to consider becoming a SAMHIN sponsor. Sponsors at the Platinum level will be featured with a logo, website link, and short description of your company / organization.
