Our center is built on values that promote human dignity and diversity, respect, empowerment, integrity, social justice, equity, and inclusion. We believe that the effects of racism and racial trauma on mental health is real and must be addressed. Like mental health disorders, racism thrives in silence. As proactive clinicians, we aim to break away from the structure of racism trauma. We are dedicated to working together by promoting diverse clinical perspectives and providing culturally sensitive mental health treatment. We acknowledge and condemn systemic racism and oppression. We commit to better educating ourselves, challenging ourselves, and exploring our blind spots by engaging in open dialogues with one another and our clients. We will not tolerate racism in any form within our agency or toward the clients we serve. We stand in solidarity with BIPOC.
