Our Credo

We seek to improve the health and well-being of people the world over. The seeds of our success lie in the value we place on the unique and whole experience of each individual who seeks our help and to whom we bring science, compassion, and respect.

We embrace the wealth of human experience brought to us by our patients and our community and aspire to reflect this in our approach to psychiatry and the behavioral sciences. We actively promote an inclusive sense of community that welcomes diversity.

In order to succeed, we strive for our clinicians, teachers, researchers, and staff to represent a range of intellectual and life perspectives. Valuing differences in age, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, nationality, religious background, sexual orientation, as well as personal abilities and resources enriches our work environment and connects us to the needs and backgrounds of the people we serve.

We reach out to professional and patient organizations, civic groups, and collaborators, to learn from them, understand community needs, and exchange experiences as we broaden our world and our influence on it.
