Monarch is a nonprofit organization supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance abuse challenges. We are a certified Critical Access Behavioral Health Agency (CABHA) and nationally accredited through The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL). These designations indicate the type of high-level, person-focused services that Monarch offers in the area of behavioral health.
We’ve worked extremely hard to earn these prestigious recognitions. But for us, the greatest testament to the quality and effectiveness of our programs comes from the people who are helped by them. Many come to us having already tried for success but continue to struggle to overcome their challenges. Seeing these same people leave us with a new set of life skills and a renewed sense of optimism for the future is why we’re so committed to what we do. Because what we do makes a difference. To us, that means everything.
We Help People Help Themselves
Our first priority is achieving successful long-term outcomes for the people we support. However, since every person’s situation is unique, the initial step is always sitting down with an individual to explore their challenges and learning what recovery means to them. Along with a team that may consist of a psychiatrist, a therapist and other mental health professionals, we can determine the most effective route to recovery. As a group, we will formulate a personalized plan inspired by *evidence-based practices. If the individual desires, friends and family members can be included in supporting the recovery process as well.
A Team as Skilled as they are Dedicated
We actively recruit and hire only the best psychiatrists, therapists, and other mental health professionals to represent Monarch as members of our behavioral health staff. They are highly trained and have decades of collective experience. However, in order to keep up with the latest techniques and methodologies, as well as the changing needs of the people we support, every member of our team is required to take part in ongoing training initiatives. As good as our team is, there is always room to improve. Together, our team acts as one cohesive unit, working with precision and compassion to ensure successful long-term outcomes for the people we support and their families.
*Evidence-based practices – practices that have consistent, scientific evidence showing improved outcomes for patients or participants.
