I have recently been thinking about and fine tuning our business vision and mission. It is important to me that everyone understands what we do and what our intention is in putting together this business. We are doing something a little new and a little different and sometimes "new" can be scary.
In the end, I think we have several goals.
1. We want serve. All the providers and teachers at Stillpoint are led to serve and are passionate about helping our community.
2. We want to de-stigmatize mental health. While confidentiality and privacy protection is and will continue to be of upmost importance, we also want individuals to know their is no shame in seeking mental health support. Additionally, mental health, just like our physical health is on a continuum. We all HAVE mental health - it just depends where you are on the continuum at any point in your life that defines the level of support you need. We may need individual therapy now, but in a few months a support group of like-minded people may be of benefit. Or maybe meditation helps to keep stress levels down for one person, while another may need movement like in yoga or other activities. We want to help not only provide these resources, but also provide community resources that help you learn to manage your overall health mindfully.
3. We aim to be holistic, integrative and community minded. This mean we see the whole person - mind, body, and spirit. We want to work with all parts of your family and life systems to provide support, which means we are always building relationships with other providers and businesses in the community to provide you with the information you need.
With these goals in mind, I developed our vision and mission:
