Cummins Behavioral Health Systems' Services
For Persons Seeking Services
We believe every person deserves access to high-quality behavioral health care regardless of where they live or their ability to pay for services. We strive to achieve the highest outcomes possible for the individuals we serve, working together with them to create treatment plans that reflect their desired goals. We tailor our services to match the individuals receiving them, with careful attention given to their unique needs and wishes as well as their personal challenges and strengths.
For Behavioral Health Professionals
We aspire to be an organization at which behavioral health professionals can learn and grow in their craft while also serving their community. We believe strongly in staying up to date with the latest best practices and models of care, and we provide training opportunities for our staff members to expand their clinical toolsets. We also place a strong emphasis on staff health and wellness, because we believe practitioners must attend to their own health and wellness before they can assist others.
For Community Organizations
We strive to be a trusted behavioral health partner and information source for the communities we serve. We routinely partner with local organizations to provide in-person training, instruction, and guidance on a wide variety of behavioral health and wellness topics. We also maintain a digital archive of behavioral health resources that can be accessed and utilized at no cost to individuals or organizations.
