Guiding Principles   

A Consumer Focused, Recovery Oriented Mental Health System
We value a mental health service delivery system that:
§  Is consumer focused
§  Offers the wellness & recovery model throughout the continuum of care
§  Supports consumers in their transition to wellness
§  Looks holistically at the overall needs of the individual and empowers persons in recovery to make purposeful choices that lead to a more satisfying and healthy lifestyle
§  Is community based
§  Prioritizes recovery awareness, prevention, cultural competency & de-stigmatization
§  Includes psycho-educationally based family services as an essential element in mental health services



The mission of the Middlesex County Mental Health Board is to promote efforts that will enhance the wellness and recovery opportunities of consumers.  The Board will advocate for consumer driven community supports, services and best practices throughout the continuum of care. The Board is dedicated to consumer empowerment, ending stigma and educating the community on all aspects of mental health awareness.
