Who We Are


Mind Matters is a non-profit clinic, based in Murphys, California, with a mission to help individuals and families affected by autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADD/ADHD), and learning disabilities in achieving their maximum potential, and to promote public understanding by serving as a community resource.


Community-Based Multi-Treatment Center

Mind Matters is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization created to fulfill the tremendous need for quality comprehensive care for individuals and families who struggle with ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities and related challenges.

Our founder, Dr. Ryan Thompson, had a vision to create a clinic in Calaveras County that would provide care to all who seek it, regardless of their financial status. In 2007, Dr. Thompson’s dream was realized, and 501(c)(3) status was awarded to Mind Matters. Thanks to the continued support from our community, through donations and grants, we are able to provide services to those who could not otherwise afford it.

Our clinic provides a comforting environment for all seeking treatment.
