“I believe that mental healthcare is a core tenant of our own self-care. Much like a primary care physician, a psychiatrist aims to further the whole health of their patients, in body, mind and spirit. This requires intention and purpose. Especially during difficult times in our lives, we may need additional support to restore our psyche. In this way, seeking mental health care takes substantial courage and insight.” - Alexander Eksir, MD
