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!
