Dr. Sheldon Jacobs, Champion of Diversity in Mental Health
Graduates of Alliant University’s California School of Professional Psychology not only learn from leaders in their respective fields, but also share their alumni status with some of the most impactful professionals in the country.
One of these alumni who is leading the charge of mental health advocacy in his field is Dr. Sheldon Jacobs. Dr. Jacobs has a diverse background that has given him a unique perspective and greatly assisted his ability to work closely with minority communities. Growing up in San Diego as a young black man and being raised by a single parent all played a major role in shaping his career focus and drive to expand access to mental health services for minority communities.
