Welcome to MensanaSF
“Mensana” is Latin for “healthy mind.” It comes from the phrase, “mens sana in corpore sano,” or “healthy mind in a healthy body.” MensanaSF is the vision of Dr. Erin Griffiths, which she established as an alternative to the traditional psychiatric medical group practice.
Who We Are?
Given the high pressures inherent in life in the Bay Area (we work hard, we play hard…and then we work some more), wouldn’t it be nice to have a sanctuary where you can go, feel supported and comforted and empowered to live a healthy life. Imagine the radical idea that you want to come to your psychiatrist’s office because it is a warm, welcoming, place of comfort and peace. MensanaSF is a place where it’s not unusual to hear laughter or conversation from the waiting room between the patients and the staff. We foster an environment where our patients feel safe and comfortable, and are able to be themselves– we believe this atmosphere is crucial in guiding our patients to feel their best, and to achieve our mutual goal of a healthy mind and a healthy life.
What We Do
We know the critical role that technology plays in making medical care more effective and efficient, especially in such a technology-forward place as the Bay Area. At MensanaSF, we pride ourselves in using technology to make your mental healthcare even more accessible, efficient, approachable, and reachable. With technology such as electronic medical records, the ability to contact you through text, email, or phone, we aim to make your mental healthcare convenient and as easy and hassle-free as possible for you. We offer appointments online and easy prescription refills. We accept most major insurances and will do all the work directly with the insurance companies so you don’t have to deal with it.
