Each person’s experience with mental health conditions is unique. As an organization, we strive to meet each person where they are on their journey, offering individualized services and opportunities to develop skills and acquire resources to reach their goals. We support growth and learning that lead to community integration and lives filled with dignity, respect, and valued social roles. The path to recovery and wellness must be walked in partnership, and we are dedicated to ensuring each person has a voice in the ways we support them.
Cultural values and traditions play a central role in each person’s recovery. We recognize that a person’s worldview, ethnicity, and culture influence their thought patterns and behavior. Our services must respect and accommodate culture and traditions while building on strengths and capacities.
