We envision a future when…
- Mental illnesses are prevented;
- Mental illnesses are detected early and appropriate interventions are immediately applied;
- Everyone with a mental illness, at any stage of life, has ready access to effective treatment and supports at a reasonable cost; and
- Every citizen of the Greater Dayton Area with a mental illness will recover—able to live, work, learn and participate fully in the community.
Our mission is to promote the mental health of all citizens within the Greater Dayton Area by providing counsel and financial support to ensure…
- Ready access to mental health services;
- Delivery of effective mental health treatment and support services; and
- Collaboration among systems impacting people with a mental illness.
Our mission will be supported by receiving benevolent gifts, accounting for and managing resources efficiently, understanding thoroughly the mental health needs and resources of the community, identifying opportunities and allocating resources to achieve the greatest positive impact upon mental health among the area's citizens.
In both ourselves and those we support, we value . …
- Personal and organizational integrity;
- Commitment to the delivery of effective mental health treatment and support services;
- Respectful partnerships among policy-makers, payers, service providers and people with a mental illness; and
