REACHING TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Our Values at Aspire Health Alliance

Our new name, Aspire Health Alliance, grew out of an enhanced mission and vision and values for the organization to highlight our belief that mental health is the foundation of a person’s overall health – as we say it, “No health without mental health.” Our Values reflect our goals for those we serve and here is more information about what we mean:

Your well-being is essential: We nurture the whole you, throughout your lifespan, helping you achieve balance, manage crisis, and improve the quality of your life. Regardless of who you are, where you come from, or what challenges you are facing, you and your family deserve a life worthwhile – as defined by you. We provide effective, research-based, behavioral health services that are focused, first and foremost, on your well-being. And we’re always looking for new and better ways to serve you and your community.

Health is about trust: We foster an environment that is safe and supportive, free of judgement or prejudice. Our clinicians and staff always strive to remove barriers, earn your trust, and make you and your family feel welcome and protected. We will be your partner in care, working to preserve your dignity by guarding your privacy and providing our services in the strictest confidence. At the same time, we are committed to ending the societal stigma around behavioral health, and advocating to make emotional well-being integral to our definition of overall health.

Community matters: Community plays a crucial role in your well-being. That’s why we’re committed to providing behavioral health services where you live, appropriate to your cultural background, near the people and organizations you know, and integrated with your health care system. Our roots run deep: we’ve been working in this region since 1926, and have always been dedicated to improving the health and welfare of all of our neighbors.
