Investment In Individuals Is A Collective Investment
Mental Health Crisis
There is an incredible lack of providers available to meet the overwhelming need. We need new providers, and we need them to be representative of the people they serve. Diversity of age, race, gender, sexuality, ability – mental health providers need to represent the continuum of human expression. We are committed to training providers who showcase the beauty of diversity.
Spheres of influence is how we think about individuals. If any person increases their wellbeing, they impact their system around them. So we believe that individual impact is actually collective impact. Individuals can be the clients coming for support themselves, or the counselors connecting with those individuals. Both create a rippling impact of wellness from the investment in individuals.
For Profit Business Doing Good
Optimum Joy is intended to be run as a healthy business, both caring for our employees and generating profit. With those profits, we cultivate the ability to do good through funding Resonate Joy. Resonate means “to be filled with a deep, full, reverberation,” like how sound starts in one place and reverberates outward. It is our goal that emotional health would reach outward from our organization and be felt in a deep way by people impacted.
Our goal is two-fold: access to quality care and development of diverse clinicians.
Training & Outreach Program Goals
Access to Care:
Mental health services has historically been reserved for the resourced, those with time, money, connections, insurance, etc. We’ve expanded access through our Clinical Residents who work with people needing care but are without the resources to access it. Affordability cannot be an inhibitor in healing. Mental wellness should be for all, regardless of status or background.
Development of Diverse Therapists:
Representation matters. We created resources to those pursuing graduate degrees in counseling that include scholarships, advanced training credentials, affinity groups for minority populations, and access to development from highly trained mental health professionals who care about the collective wisdom that diverse perspective brings. It is our hope that if people need representation as part of their healing journey, they will find it.
