We are proud to be
Great Plains Mental Health Associates was formed with two primary goals in mind. First and foremost, to care for our patients from the basis of a holistic nursing model by acknowledging the interconnectedness of the spirit, mind, and body as well as recognizing a patient is not defined by their illness but rather by the humanity that lies within each of us.
We know a person is molded and impacted by the environment in which they live and the relationships with which they engage. Our goal is to take the time to hear their story, remember the importance of their spirituality in the sense of how they connect and define their purpose, and work in collaboration with the provider community for the best possible outcomes. Our second goal was to create a space where providers are free to give the powerful and meaningful care that first drew them to the profession, gone are the quotas and crammed schedules. We wanted to create a clinic were providers are independent but operating in a collaborative and supportive atmosphere with like-minded, caring professionals who are eager to change the face of mental health.
