- This nonprofit health care organization provides truly life-changing mental health services.
- Unlike physical health care where there is a commonly agreed-upon remedy for any given ailment, mental health care doesn’t have a common treatment, and Centerstone is doing the work to improve the clinical treatment model.
- Centerstone helps hundreds of thousands of patients nationwide and has changed national policy to break the stigma surrounding mental health issues and substance use disorders.
Centerstone is a nonprofit health care organization that provides exceptional mental health care and substance use disorder services. They provide mental care, addiction treatment, and community education across the United States.
By using a shared-service model of departments, Centerstone’s dedicated teams are always there to help out fellow staff, no matter when, where, or how. Unlike physical health care where there is a commonly agreed-upon remedy for any given ailment, mental health care doesn’t have a common treatment. That’s why, through countless studies, experiments, technological advancements, and evidence-based practices, Centerstone is constantly working to provide that clinical model while simultaneously crafting each individual patient’s unique path to success.
Changing National Policy
Centerstone does much more than provide for the individual; they are reshaping national policy in America. Just this year, the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act was passed, which will help thousands to fight addiction. Centerstone’s national policy team, alongside many other mental health care providers, have had countless meetings with Congress members and Senators. Fighting the opioid epidemic and achieving better mental health care has to be a collaborative effort. A win for anyone is a win for all. Centerstone’s scientists, researchers, and academics are all experts devoted to growing mental health care through innovation. Whether it’s through developing smartphone apps that let their clients communicate with their counselors or making breakthroughs in medication-assisted treatment, Centerstone’s dedicated researchers are changing the world for the better.
Mental Health Care Funding
Since the inception of Centerstone’s grant writing team just under 15 years ago, they have secured over $250 million in public aid. This is an unprecedented amount for a nonprofit of any size, especially for one in mental health care. These funds directly impact Centerstone’s ability to provide life-changing services to our more than 150,000 clients and improve the research within the mental health care industry as a whole.
The Future of Mental Health Treatment
Centerstone’s providers are on an unending quest to better themselves and improve the care they give to those that seek their help. They have an entire team leading this cause—the Center for Clinical Excellence—because there’s always room for improvement. By the end of 2020, Centerstone plans on having another Center for Clinical Excellence entirely devoted to depression, one of the most widespread forms of mental illness in the world. In addition, Centerstone is always searching for ways to expand their care, whether by adding new services, by widening the range of locations, or by working with new partners in every community.
