DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Our DEE Committee was featured in the June/July issue of Evansville Business Magazine. Click the image above to read the article.
Our first Pride Talk addresses how a clinician might navigate the privacy and safety issues that arise when a child discloses in a session that they are questioning their gender identity.
A Message from Katy
A sense of belonging is a basic need all of us have. A place where you can be your authentic self, where your perspective is valued and respected, where your story is heard, where you are not only included, but engaged. A place where being brave and vulnerable is an asset. It is my desire that Southwestern Behavioral Healthcare, Inc. (Southwestern) would grow to be an employer, treatment provider, and community partner that has a culture that allows our staff, clients, and community at large to be brave and truly belong. We want healthy, respectful, diverse, inclusive teams that partner well with our community, and provide a place for people to heal.
Because we value the ideas and experiences of our staff, we invest our time and resources towards the activities of the Diversity, Equity, and Engagement Committee (D.E.E.) within Southwestern. As an organization, we will continue this journey together through our R.I.S.E. (Respect, Inclusion, Social Justice, Equity) Company Challenge. This journey is inclusive and it will take all of Southwestern to move it forward!
“For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we are brave enough to be it”- Amanda Gorman
A Message from Cedalia
At Southwestern Behavioral Healthcare, we are committed to making a better workplace for our current and future employees. We understand that real and meaningful change starts at home. Together we are working to build a greater Southwestern Behavioral Healthcare where we understand the importance of self-identity and how we can use personal differences, resources, and talents to generate innovative ideas, develop leaders, and create a choice place for our clients and employees. Together, we are building and shaping our culture to ensure everyone feels welcome, safe, and connected. As an organization, through our R.I.S.E. charge and our Diversity, Equity, and Engagement Committee and its initiatives, we will continue to prioritize and develop an inclusive, engaged, and diverse place for all employees, the clients we serve, and the community.
