Aurora Mental Health & Recovery (AMHR)’s Cultural Development & Wellness Center Behavioral Health services are divided into two separate behavioral health clinics here in Aurora. First, is the Asian Pacific Clinic – formerly known as Asian Pacific Development Center (APDC) and located at 1537 Alton St. Aurora, CO 80010. Second, is the Refugee & Immigrant Clinic – which includes the Trauma Resilience Youth Program (TRYP) and is located at 1504 Galena St. Aurora, CO 80010.

Both of AMHR’s Cultural Development & Wellness Center Behavioral Health clinics provide culturally sensitive behavioral healthcare services to our local immigrant and refugee populations. Each of these clinics provides the same high level of care with an emphasis on the unique needs of our clients. The combination and coordination of these two clinics allows us to serve our increasingly diverse local community with a broad range of mental health services tailored according to each client’s native language and culture.


Asian Pacific Clinic

The Asian Pacific Clinic – previously a program of Asian Pacific Development Center (APDC) – provides a variety of services to clients who represent a wide range of mental health issues from brief, transitory conditions to acute, chronic psychiatric symptoms and disorders. Services are tailored to address the needs of immigrant and refugee status clients.

Issues involving cultural adjustment, such as language, values, customs, and behavioral differences are often intimately associated with the client’s chief complaint. Our current enrolled clients are primarily (but not limited to) Asian persons from Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, China, Japan, Korea, Laos, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. As a specialty clinic, our behavioral health care services are typically provided in the clients’ native language with bilingual staff who share the same cultural background as the client.

Asian Pacific Clinic is located at 1537 Alton St. Aurora, CO 80010.

They are trained and experienced with both mainstream systems and the cultural adaptations that must be made. They are “cultural brokers”.
