From Our Website

Asian Pacific Development Center is powered by its rich heritage of AANHPI advocacy and exists today to serve and support all immigrant, and refugee communities with a whole health, community-based engagement approach through health, education, and advocacy. APDC's Behavioral Health Clinic provides a variety of services to clients who represent a wide range of mental health issues from brief, transitory conditions to the more acute and chronic psychiatric symptoms and disorders. APDC provides victims assistance and support to those who have witnessed a crime.


Asian Pacific Development Center (APDC) was founded in 1980 after a large number of refugees began to resettle in Colorado after the Vietnam War. A group of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) leaders consisting of social workers, attorneys, psychologists and psychiatrists living in Denver became concerned about these newcomers and their high prevalence of mental health issues, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. To address this need, the group formed APDC and opened a mental health clinic-recruiting and training AAPI community members to provide culturally and linguistically responsive assistance.
