SACRAMENTO, Calif., – MARCH 23, 2022 – Mindpath Health, a leading independent US provider of high-quality outpatient mental health services, today announced its further expansion in its flagship state of California with the acquisition of Psychiatric Centers at San Diego, San Diego’s largest mental health practice.

With a focus on clinical excellence, providers can offer patients a range of treatments and modalities, including psychiatry, medication management, psychotherapy/counseling, family therapy/counseling, relationship/marital counseling, group therapy, psychological testing, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy.
“We are thrilled to expand our reach in California, a core state since our organization’s inception decades ago,” said Christopher Brengard, CEO of Mindpath Health. “With the acquisition of respected mental health leader Psychiatric Centers, we are now able to increase access to care in greater San Diego communities, allowing them to thrive.
