Guest of Honor: Dr. Jei Africa, Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor

Dr. Africa is one of the few Tagalog-speaking licensed clinical psychologists who is also certified as a domestic violence and addiction counselor in the San Francisco-Bay Area. Currently, he serves as Director of Behavioral Health and Recovery Services at County of Marin, Department of Health and Human Services.

As an advocate for providing effective and quality services for the underserved and unserved population, especially Asians and Filipinos, he continues to work with different sectors of the community to educate them about health and mental health issues. In his work, he is mindful of the role and influence of socio-cultural factors on how individuals conceptualize and make meaning of their experience, which in turn influences how they behave.

On October 20, 2017, Dr. Africa received the Immigrant Recognition Award for California’s 14th Congressional District from Congresswoman Jackie Speier. Let's join us in welcoming Dr. Africa to Marin County and our Asian American community.
