Celebrating Eight Years of Service
This year marks the eighth anniversary of San Tan Behavioral Health Services. It is with tremendous gratitude that we reflect upon this remarkable milestone.
In 2008, STBHS started with a single contract to serve a single community, the Gila River Indian Community. We began with school-based programs, young adult services and community based counseling. Over the years, our relationship with the Gila River Community has been strengthened and we have been able to create and implement programs to better serve the needs and wants of our friends and clients in this Community. Today, in addition to the services initially provided to the Gila River Community, STBHS provides trauma counseling, mentoring, Therapuetic Recreation Programs including karate, dance, boxing, and basketball, as well as life-skill weekend programs and plans to create and implement more programs as our relationship with the Community grows and is strengthened even further.
In late 2012, STBHS entered into a services agreement with the Navajo Nation, and in early 2014, STBHS entered into a services agreement with the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. In 2015 we entered into a contract with Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care (MMIC) and now serve clients throughout Maricopa County. We are very excited about these new opportunities and are looking forward to working with each of these entities and their respective members.
The growth and stability that STBHS has enjoyed over the past eight years would not be sustainable without the hard work and dedication of many hard-working employees, enthusiastic community affiliates, devoted friends and loyal family members. It is with all of these people that we ask you to join in us in celebrating eight years of tradition and service.
