Dr. Michel Alexendre Sacha Vington, M.D. Founder, Board President and CEO:
Dr. SachaVi, M.D., is a 20-year resident of Bedford-Stuyvesant, and a life-long resident of Brooklyn. In 1970 his mother, on a 16hr/day nurse’s aide salary, brought-up the 5-brothers their homeland of Ayiti (Haiti). With support grandmother (who at age of 65 pioneered our family migration to the US in 1965) we were the second set. Sisters, eldest cousin, and some neighbor-family were first). They lived in the Brownsville/East New York/East Flatbush area. Dr. Vington bought the present residence at 567 Quincy Street (BedStuy) 17-years ago for the primary purpose of developing VAyaLOKALZepi Institute, LLC (DBA VayaInstitute.net). This has been a journey.
Having acquired a keen understanding of the present shortcomings of the disease-based mental health model, Dr.Vington recognizes the need for a paradigm-shift to a health-based mental health approach. To accomplish this goal for changing the science of mental health to being health-based, Dr. Vington has developed the process of Human KÒre\KÒmUNITY Process (HKP). With modern sciences like quantum physics, epigenetics, motivation science, and project management as components of its foundation, Human KÒre\KÒmUNITY Process (HKP) connects the dots from health and human services, to community empowerment to civic engagement.
