Mission, Vision, and Values
To be committed to the wellness of individuals, their families, and the community through prevention, intervention, treatment, and education.
To embark on a mental wellness path with our community and to ensure compassion, acceptance, respect, empowerment, and sincerity with each step we take together.
We believe in three values that underpin all of our work, including our commitment to inclusivity, equity, diversity, and belonging. These values are:
● Be Brave. This is powerful work that challenges and transforms people and systems. Creating safe and brave spaces for people to show up and be seen means both skills building around vulnerability, courage, shame, and empathy, and working to dismantle the systems that devalue and dehumanize people.
● Serve the Work. Protect the integrity of the research and protect the wellbeing of those we serve with the work. For all leaders, including facilitators and teachers, this means working within your scope and skill, and doing your work before you do the work with others.
● Take good care. Love, grace, accountability, courage, vulnerability, empathy, shame resilience, and the power of story can change the world. As we put these into practice, we must take care of ourselves, each other, this community, and the people we serve.
Embracing Our Mission
At Appalachian, we have established successful partnerships with local clinics, practitioners, hospitals, and businesses, reaffirming our strong affinity for our community and dedication to its mental health goals. These relationships enable us to provide education, intervention, and the best possible treatment to individuals, families, and our entire community as a whole.
Embracing our Vision
At Appalachian, we understand that everyone’s path to wellness looks differently as everyone heals in their own unique way. We believe that everyone who travels down this road to wellness deserves to have a voice and to be treated with respect and empowerment to make the decisions that are best for them. We believe that love, grace, accountability, courage, vulnerability, empathy, shame resilience, and the power of story can change the world. That’s what we are committed to teaching, training, and practicing.
