We strive to create a team that reflects the people we serve and where our guests and employees feel empowered to be their full, authentic selves.

The APRN assigned to work with this interdisciplinary team has the opportunity to form relationships with patients with mental health and substance use disorders, manage their psychotropic medications, provide psychotherapy, and participate in a variety of advocacy and case-management duties in collaboration with other members of the team. The APRN may join other team members to see patients in the hospital, visit them while incarcerated, and search for them in the community.
