“San Gabriel Children’s Center will be the community’s essential resource to ensure the health and welfare of all those in need.”
We believe that clients should trust that we will be open and honest about our treatment process, and consistent in following established protocol and best practice in the field of mental health.
We believe that positive mental health is an essential ingredient in the overall health and welfare of a community, and that by working in partnership with other community resources we can be more effective in ensuring lifelong wellness for our clients.
We believe that clients and staff must take joint responsibility for the treatment process and commit to action for a positive outcome.
We believe that as a staff we are responsible not only for our own performance to uphold the values and professional standards the SGCC represents, but also to support the success of our peers so that, as a whole, we can advance SGCC’s mission and vision.
We believe that each client deserves a personalized treatment plan that connects to their individual needs and preferences and leads them along a path to personal fulfillment.
We believe that successful treatment results when families, caregivers and others in a client’s sphere of influence are committed to positive client outcomes and are engaged in the treatment process.
