We believe services and supports must be provided in an ethical manner, meet established outcome measures, and are based on the Everyday Life principles and industry best practices. We also emphasize the continued education and development of our workforce to provide the best care possible.
DIGNITY AND RESPECT
Every individual has equal value and is treated with dignity and respect. We develop person-centered services in the least restrictive environment possible.
Services are primarily community-based and promote opportunities for community integration and meaningful employment.
We believe in respecting the culture and values of the people and families we serve. We emphasize and promote diversity in our ideas, our workforce, and the services/supports provided through our organization.
High ethical standards and integrity are adhered to by the organization and are continuously applied to our daily work.
We strongly advocate for the rights and needs of the people we serve, educating the community and political decision makers about the challenges they face.
We believe it is our responsibility to be good stewards in the efficient and effective use of all human, fiscal, and material resources.
We believe that services and supports are the shared responsibility of state and local governments, communities, family members, and service providers. Through open communication, we continuously build relationships and partnerships with the people and families we serve, communities, governmental/nongovernmental entities and other service providers to meet the needs of people and their families.
We believe it is important to embrace new ideas and change in order to improve the public mental health system. We seek dynamic and innovative ways to provide evidence-based services/supports and strive to find creative solutions to inspire hope and help people obtain their goals.
