MHMR Concho Valley plays a vital role in the Concho Valley as we provide community-based services to persons with mental illness, intellectual & developmental disabilities (IDD), autism, and substance use disorders in Coke, Concho, Crockett, Irion, Reagan, Sterling, and Tom Green Counties. As the Local Mental Health & Local Intellectual & Developmental Disability Authority, we are there to assist people with getting the right service or support at the right time with the right intensity.
MHMR Concho Valley strives to be a Trauma-Informed organization. We understand that traumatic experiences can impact all people, whether directly or indirectly and we are working to develop an organizational culture based on beliefs about resilience, recovery, and healing from trauma. As a best practice, MHMRCV recognizes and is committed to the six key principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach that are generalized across all settings of our organization.
2. Trustworthiness and Transparency
3. Peer Support
4. Collaboration and Mutuality
5. Empowerment, Voice, and Choice
6. Cultural, Historical, and Gender Issues
As an organization, MHMR Concho Valley is learning how to realize the widespread impact of trauma and understand potential paths for recovery; how to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in persons served, families, staff, and others involved with the systems; how to respond by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices; and seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.
Our dedicated staff of 165 professionals and paraprofessionals has done an incredible job strengthening and expanding our programs to better serve people in the Concho Valley. Truly implementing our mission of, “Working together to help people help themselves.”
