Mission Statement

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.




  • We uphold high professional standards. 

  • We practice continuous quality improvement.


  • We advocate for access to care for all people and support public efforts to fund services for vulnerable people who can not pay. We believe that people served have personal responsibility as part of the interdisciplinary team; employees have personal responsibility for achieving the agency’s mission. Employees and persons served must be given authority commensurate with their responsibilities.


  • We believe all people should have opportunities for development at all stages of life, and we support learning that promotes healthy growth and well-being. We create a workplace that supports and nurtures employees.


  • We help people in ways that uphold dignity and choice. We believe employment and meaningful activities are beneficial for all people.


  • We believe community support is critical to our success, and we appreciate others who assist us in our mission.  We believe the use of community-based family and family-like supports is the best way of helping people with problems caused by mental illness, developmental disabilities, alcohol and other drug abuse.
