Hamid Mirsalimi, Ph.D., ABPP
Board Certified Clinical Psychologist
While many mental health issues and struggles of Iranian-Americans are similar to those of the majority culture, others are uniquely influenced by factors such as culture, religion, history, immigration, feelings of alienation, and geopolitical contexts. In this gathering, Dr. Mirsalimi will discuss some of those issues that may lead to struggles with depression, anxiety, and marital/relational problems.
