The Tang Center: The Tang Center services are available to spouses of post-docs and visiting scholars, and will continue to be so in the future. Services include: Free, confidential assessment and referral to community resources, workshops and classes on various topics including stress reduction, mindfulness, healthy relationships, and elder care. The Tang Center also offers short term counseling (1-3 sessions) and then provides appropriate referrals if clients wish to pursue ongoing counseling. The Tang Center provides these referrals based on clients' insurance, resources, and ability to pay.

Other Resources: Going to the doctor can be expensive in America. Take advantage of the many free or low-cost medical options listed by the Berkeley Free Clinic. Look for the Handout "Womens' Medical Health Referral". If you qualify for low-income, Planned Parenthood might be also a good option for you; they offer free exams, pregnancy tests and birth control.
