“Our mission is to be a source of health and hope for people and the communities in which they live, particularly as it pertains to mental illness. We create services that heal, education that transforms, and advocacy that brings a just society for everyone. MFS strives for respectful community response to the needs of citizens with mental illness and other behavioral disorders. Individuals and families will have access to support services and opportunities necessary to pursue a life course of their choosing.”
Monadnock Family Services joined Healthy Monadnock as an Organizational Champion in 2012, and support their employees’ health and well-being in a variety of ways. Staff benefit from on-site acupuncture and yoga to manage stress, a written policy banning tobacco on campus and while employees are with clients, and flextime from work for employees seeking mental health or substance misuse treatment. In addition, MFS has pledged to provide environmental supports to help employees manage stress.
