Behavioral Health

It is The Vision of the Behavioral Health Department of Community Connections to ensure exceptional supports are available in our Counties to adults, older adults, and transition-age youth with serious mental illness and co-occurring disorders utilizing recovery, resiliency, and self-determination principles.
 
The Mission of the Behavioral health Department of Community Connections is to:
  • Ensure all Department employees are trained in recovery, resiliency, and self-determination models
  • Ensure that all Department employees treat people with dignity and respect free of discrimination and stigma
  • Ensure that families and individuals are at the table and given a strong voice when developing services in Clearfield and Jefferson Counties
  • Ensure that support plans focus on quality of life issues that incorporate natural community supports that ensure true inclusion
  • Ensure that we as a support system for individuals and families help to foster empowerment and hope in all collaborations.
  • Ensure that supports identified by individuals and families as necessary to achieve recovery are available in our Counties.
  • Enhance community understanding of mental illness to reduce stigma and encourage help seeking behaviors.
  • Ensure that individual’s and family’s choices are recognized and supported by treatment teams.
