Guiding Principles

Safety first: Patients, staff, and our community.

We provide treatment, rehabilitation, and support to assist patients in their recovery process.

We tailor our services to the individual’s:

We work to promote empowerment, advocacy, and choice by consumers of service. We are partners with consumers in fighting the stigma and misconceptions about mental illness.

We work with families as respected allies.

We operate under contemporary principles of health care:

We specialize in treatment of people with severe and complex mental illness, requiring continuity of care, not episodic care. We operate as part of an integrated delivery network that is planned and supervised by County Departments of Mental Health.

We intend not only to meet and exceed existing standards in our field but contribute to establishing new ones. We engage in continuous learning, problem solving and performance improvement. We rely on science as it leads to innovative, evidence-based treatment approaches.

To provide hope, everything about our work must project hope:
