Ugonna Duru is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She is passionate about bringing accessible mental health services to all.
She started her career working as a Registered nurse at a General Hospital, where she cared for patients with various medical conditions; She discovered that several of the patients also had co-existing mental health conditions that were not being fully addressed.
