Positive Growth, Inc, Counseling Center provides high quality services that are individualized and built on strengths. Our aim is to empower and support the people we serve to live self determined, productive and valued lives within the community. PGCC must ensure the necessary care and support is provided to promote individual recovery from mental illness, reduce psychiatric hospitalization, out-of home-placement and build resiliency in children and youth to help them reach their full potential and assist in reunification from placement when applicable.
Positive Growth Counseling Center seeks to provide services to support empower and enable individuals, families and communities to be strengthened through professional community based services that will enhance the health, safety and needs of the community.
The vision of our counseling center is to create a culturally diverse system to serve children, adolescents, adults and families. Our services assure empowerment, have a community focus, are cost-effective for the system and are integrated to serve the community as a whole, regardless of cultural or ethnic background.
• The system of care should be person-centered and family focused with the needs of the child, adolescent, adult, and family dictating the types and mix of services provided.
• The families and surrogate families of children and adolescents with mental health needs should be full participants in all aspects of the planning and delivery of services.
• Children, adolescents, and adults with mental health needs should receive services that are integrated, with linkages between child-serving agencies and programs and mechanisms for planning, developing and coordinating services.
• Children, adolescents, and adults with mental health needs should receive services within the least restrictive, most normative environment that is clinically’ appropriate.
• Children, adolescents, and adults with mental health needs should receive individualized services in accordance with the unique needs and potentials of each child, and guided by an individualized service plan.
• The system of care should be culturally competent with agencies, programs and services that are responsive to the cultural, racial, and ethnic differences of the populations they serve.
