It is the mission of Advantage Behavioral Health Systems to provide person-centered community-based services and treatment to individuals and families experiencing mental illness, developmental disabilities, and addictions, by collaboratively using personal, community and organizational resources.
We at Advantage Behavioral Health Systems envision a community wherein people receive support in dealing with the effects of mental illness, developmental disabilities, and alcohol and other drug abuse.
“The opportunity to work alongside individuals with severe and persistent mental illness has taught me so much not only about myself as a social worker in the making, but about the policies surrounding financial assistance like disability and medicare/medicaid and about the stigma surrounding mental health. Through this internship I have developed key social work skills as I advocate on behalf of my clients, teach essential social/interpersonal, independent living, and emotion regulation skills, and perform rigorous research on mental health. ”
