Most every organization and business has a mission statement that describes and defines what they are trying to accomplish. Some of these statements are long and involved. Others are straightforward and simple.
Our Mission Statement Is Simple
The mission statement of Johnstown Heights Behavioral Health falls into the latter category:
Improve the lives we touch.
Like many other organizations, we also have a set of shared values that underpin our approach to our work. We are going to take a look at those values, how they relate to our mission, and how our mission and values can be adapted for your personal use.
Value No. 1: Honesty
We work with integrity and fairness.
It perhaps goes without saying that honesty is a cornerstone of all human relationships, so it makes sense to find it among our values.
But it is also extremely important to be honest with yourself. If you are struggling with a mental health disorder, it can be tempting to try to ignore it or to hide it from others. It is far better, however, to face the issue honestly so that you can get the help you need.
Value No. 2: Competence
We strive to be the best and hold ourselves accountable.
You wouldn’t want to pursue mental health treatment from anyplace that didn’t value competence highly. And that is why we hold ourselves to a high standard.
The notion of accountability can be important to you as well. You are, no doubt, accountable to many people in your life—your boss, your family, and more. Getting the help you need to improve your mental well-being is one important way to be sure you are able to do your best in all situations.
Value No. 3: Perseverance
We meet challenges with the resolve to succeed.
Our work involves plenty of challenges as we seek to meet each person where they are and provide personalized care. We tackle those challenges with a spirit of resolve.
A spirit of resolve is important for you, too. There may be times when it feels like it is more trouble than it is worth to try to improve your mental wellness and maintain those improvements. When the going gets tough, perseverance will keep you moving toward your goals.
Value No. 4: Passion
We are passionate about what we do, each other, and who we serve.
We love what we do and the ways in which it can help people enjoy a higher quality of life. And our commitment to one another makes that work possible.
You might not think of seeking out mental healthcare as something you can feel passionate about, but the fact is that issues like depression and anxiety can leach away your enthusiasm for many things that used to be important to you. Addressing your mental health disorder can spark a return of your passion.
Value No. 5: Respect
We honor the human dignity of everyone we work with.
Our respect for every person we serve means that you can count on us to provide compassionate care that is personalized for your specific needs. Respect for everyone means no cookie-cutter approaches to care.
When you are struggling with a mental health disorder, you might also be struggling to maintain your self-respect. But reminding yourself of your inherent dignity is an excellent first step toward deciding to get the help you not only need, but deserve.
Value No. 6: Teamwork
We succeed, and have fun, by pulling together.
No one in our organization can do our work all alone. We rely on one another so that we can offer the best possible care for those we serve. Happily, that sense of teamwork makes work a lot more fun than it might otherwise be.
You have a team, too. Your friends and family can pull together to help you reach your mental health goals, and you can all have fun together in the process. Being honest about how people in your life can help you maintain improved mental well-being is important. And your team can make a big difference in helping your individual effort pay off.
