It is always an honor to represent Spectrum Healthcare. And when the work we do is recognized by our peers, well, it is an honor, indeed.

Last night, Spectrum Healthcare was recognized at the Northern Arizona Regional Behavioral Health Authority (NARBHA) annual event and we were so proud to receive three top honors, both individually and as an organization.

A huge congratulations to Gina Mendez for receiving her 20 year Service Award. Tirelessly caring for the needs of the people in your community is no small thing and Gina had done so with kindness and compassion for 20 years.

Spectrum’s Work Adjustment Training Program (WAT) took home the Mickey Hawley award for excellence in the provision of behavioral health. The WAT program helps seriously mentally ill clients develop skills and way to increase productivity so that they may overcome employment barriers and find meaningful work within the community.

And last, but certainly not least, Spectrum’s former CEO, Robert Cartia, received NARBHA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Robert has dedicated his life to bettering the lives of those around him and improved mental healthcare has been his mission. Robert began when Spectrum was simply the Verde Valley Guidance Clinic and was instrumental in the crossover to Spectrum’s Integrated Care services, adding Primary Care and Pediatrics to Mental Healthcare services so that ALL the needs of a patient could be met under one roof.

Congratulations not just to those who took home awards last night, but to ALL those who strive to make their community better by helping those in it FEEL better.spectrum healthcare arizona_0031spectrum healthcare arizona_0032spectrum healthcare arizona_0033spectrum healthcare ©2015

The moon was amazing last night: an eclipse giving way to a moon covered in a reddish cast. Science explains why this occurs: the light from all the planet’s sunrises and sunsets are cast upon the moon during the middle of the eclipse, which creates that incredible orange-red glow.

We know why this beautiful moon occurs, but thinking back to thousands, or even hundreds of years ago, one can see how this event would be startling to those gazing up at the night sky. Without an understanding of why this was happening, people throughout history were left to make up their own explanations and stories. 

Mental health is a lot like that gorgeous moon.

Years ago, we had very few concrete explanations of why the body acts as it does. And when behaviors were startling, well, mankind made up its own explanations.

Today, we understand the human body and its marvelous complexities. And as technology increases, we understand it even more. We have studied and analyzed and through our discoveries, we’ve come up with solutions to make Life better for those in need.

That’s what we do at Spectrum everyday.

Our goal is to help educate our patients; to work with them as partners; to find the best healthcare solutions for mind and body.
To remove the scary and unknown from healthcare and replace it with peace of mind.

Primary care to Pediatrics to Mental Health…we do it all under one roof to make it as easy as possible for everyone to feel better.

When it comes to making a change, we often hear people say, “I can’t.”

And it’s bothersome, this “I can’t.”

Say something else.

say you don’t want to.
say you’d rather not spend time doing it.
say there are other things you want to do.
say that the hard work scares you.
say just the thought of it exhausts you
say that you don’t know what you’re doing
say that you don’t want to deal with the obstacles in your path.
say that you’re unsure or intimidated or nervous.

Say ANY of those things…

Just don’t say you “can’t.”

Because that’s simply not true. You CAN.

And we can help.
