FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- IMG Health Clinic, (IMG) a healthcare provider specializing in testing, treatment, and management of HIV, Hepatitis C, STDs, and PrEP, recently broadened its services to offer mental health care. According to the National Alliance of Mental Health, 1-in-5 Americans experience mental illness and almost 10% of Americans experience mental illness that negatively compromises daily activities and quality of life. Scientific evidence supports the impact of mental health on physical health. For example, depression, chronic stress, and unmanaged anxiety has been linked to long lasting conditions such as heart disease and stroke.
Dr. Kishma Victor, President of IMG is spearheading all initiatives to meet the mental health needs of patients that mostly live in vulnerable and marginalized communities. Alongside a treatment team of highly accomplished board-certified psychiatrists, and licensed doctoral and master's level clinicians, Dr. Victor champions for mental health, overall wellness, resilience, and recovery services for those struggling with addiction across the State of Florida.

This is evidenced by our nontraditional delivery of health services directly in communities of need. IMG empowers underserved communities to receive care and embrace healthier lifestyles". – Dr. Kishma Victor, President of IMG Health Clinic
Individual counseling, psychotherapy, medication management, case management, and life management are just some of the newly added services available to IMG's existing patient pool.
