Who we are

Over the past decade the awareness of the escalation of the burden placed on our society by mental health issues has been increasingly elevated. This is in part due to the work of social education and awareness, but unfortunately it is also due to increased violent events which have forever restructured our social interactions. It has become clear it is essential to not only protect and promote mental well-being for everyone, but to also address critical needs of citizens with mental disorders to encourage and support prevention, treatment, and maintenance of good mental health. Many explanations and suggestions have been offered to answer the questions of why this increase is occurring, and how do we stop the pervasive increase in all behavioral health issues. However, the answers to these questions are often becoming complex and involve multiple social, psychological, and biological factors acting many times in conjunction with each other. This level of complex causality points to solutions requiring multiple and varying layers of treatment modalities, which will more easily be developed through broad community efforts and collaborations. The CDC has published their recommendation on establishing a comprehensive and holistic approach to behavioral health care, which identifies the need for multiple community entities to partner, and through collaborative efforts, address the behavioral health needs in their communities.

The CDC report targets multiple areas to help further the effort to decrease the suicide rate and foster community wide collaboration to achieve comprehensive mental health care. Healthy Minds has been developed over the last few years to impact these exact target areas and act as a facilitator within our community to establish a foundation of comprehensive behavioral healthcare. Healthy Minds continues to interact with multiple core community entities to assist in the identification of gaps in services and/or barriers to behavioral healthcare. Healthy Minds also works to facilitate the collaboration between these entities to establish and strengthen relationships and partnerships for the purpose of creating comprehensive behavioral health services for all Midland County residents. This approach results in unique, community-specific solutions to help establish and sustain a healthy and productive environment for all.
