What Shapes Us

Centerstone has been a national leader in community-based mental health care for sixty-four years. Our fold is made up of specialists, providers, and researchers spread across several U.S. states who work every day to help those who battle mental health and substance use issues.

One fold includes therapists and counselors caring for those who need it for any reason. We are shaped by our desire to serve those that trust us to care for them and by our eagerness to lend a listening ear and a guiding hand. We strive to make a positive difference in the world, shaped by love and care.

Another fold includes our Research Institute, made up of scientists and researchers using expertise and knowledge to change the face of mental health care. We are driven by the urgency we feel to increase access to care for everyone. We make innovations through technology and evidence-based practices to better care for the people we serve. We strive to increase the speed of access for individuals and empower clinicians to provide the best care possible. We fight to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on mental health through expanding telehealth technology and accessibility.

Another fold includes legislative advocates fighting for the people who depend on us. We are dedicated to the ongoing improvement of national policy to make mental health care more accessible to all. We have seen success in our advocacy through Congress’ passing of a bill that will establish 9-8-8 as the three-digit dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Through our work, we shape people’s understanding of how we, along with our nation’s policymakers, can make a better future for everyone impacted by mental health and substance use disorders.

Another fold includes our Military Services, devoted to ensuring active duty service members, veterans, and their loved ones have the resources and support they need to lead healthy lives. We understand the unique challenges service members and veterans face, and desire to see them succeed in life both inside and outside the military. We provide in-person and telehealth counseling, therapeutic retreats, online support groups, classes, and workshops essential to battling the effects of post-traumatic stress and other issues faced by this community.

Another fold includes our Foundation, made up of philanthropists and supporters working to advance research and service innovation. We have a passion to improve the work that’s directly impacting clients and their families. We at the Foundation provide effective stewardship of endowments, including investments and disbursements, to make sure that we continue to improve the lives of individuals and families who come to us for care.

Each of these folds work together to form a community taking care of our communities. We are shaped by the desire to see our families, friends, and neighbors cared for. We take every opportunity we can to give back by providing what every community needs – quality mental health care. Whatever your need is, we hope you think of us as your neighbor who’s ready to help.

Welcome to our fold.

About the Design

Sadako Sasaki survived the Hiroshima bombing in 1945, when she was only two years old. She was later diagnosed with leukemia. Inspired by Japanese lore that says those who fold 1,000 origami cranes will be granted a wish, Sadako spent her last days folding cranes in hopes of recovering. She passed away in 1955 but she never gave up hope.

Today, paper cranes are seen as a symbol of peace, hope, and healing across the globe because of Sadako’s story.
