Supporting Paths to Health and Recovery 2011-2012 Annual Report Centerstone of Indiana

The mission of Centerstone is to prevent and cure mental illness and addiction. At Centerstone of Indiana we work to provide individuals and families the opportunity for recovery and health through availability of research-based mental health and addiction therapy, treatment, technology and education.


from the CEO The path of a healthy organization is not unlike the course that an individual must chart. There is both beautiful and daunting terrain. A good map, supportive companions, the right tools and supplies, and a sense of hope are critical to initiating or sustaining a positive direction. But if we can stay the course and meet the challenges, we often find more success than perhaps we ever imagined possible. We were privileged this year to have been able to provide assistance to over 24,000 consumers and their families in southern and central Indiana, helping them to move down their path toward health and recovery. Last year, through the dedicated work of our nearly 900 staff, we continued with the tradition of developing new programs and enhancing existing services with some of the best evidence-based practices available. Clinical pathways were established for the treatment of substance use disorders, depression, trauma, and co-occurring physical health challenges. We expanded recovery oriented systems of care (ROSC) and added two new Recovery Engagement Centers. In addition we developed the now nationally recognized v-REC (virtual recovery engagement center) extending the reach of ROSC to more rural areas and using technology to enhance the quality of care. We built a state-of-the-art supportive housing development with 60 apartments now available for individuals and families who have faced both mental health issues and homelessness. Our routine use of outcome measures allows us to report definitively the improvements of those we work with. For example, there were improved health habits and health indicators among BE Well program participants – individuals who were dually diagnosed with a serious mental illness and another chronic health condition. And there was a 40% reduction in recidivism rates among Indiana Department of Correction referrals participating in our re-entry programs. Also, across the organization we saw decreased school absences, arrests, alcohol and drug consumption, and hospitalizations among youth and adult clients, as well as increased hours worked among adults. More recently, we partnered with the Mental Health Center of Denver to implement their recovery markers system for persons with serious mental illness, an enhancement in our ability to measure the distance traveled and progress made through treatment. It is an interesting time to lead a healthcare organization. There are many reasons to be optimistic about the role that behavioral health can play in our changing environment. Central characteristics of a reformed healthcare system include an increased focus on healthcare integration, recovery and wellness, health outcomes, consumer and family participation, and technology-enabled care. These are all strengths of community behavioral health organizations – and Centerstone in particular. So we are excited about this next phase of our journey to improve the lives and health of those we serve and look forward, expectantly, to the road ahead.

“Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley.”

from the Board Chair Supporting health and recovery in the many communities of south central Indiana has been the primary goal of the Centerstone Board of Directors. Centerstone leadership and staff diligently carry out this work of providing assistance for children, adults, and families and improving their quality of life. When people are most vulnerable, it is good to know there are local services available to help them.

As a board member and board chair, it has been my privilege and pleasure to serve as a volunteer in this capacity and meet regularly with community representatives, learn more of local mental health needs, and offer assistance in the direction of the organization so that these services might be sustained long term. I have seen the positive impact of Centerstone services in people’s lives .

Homeward Bound 2012 On April 15, 2012, Centerstone staff and volunteers participated in Homeward Bound – Indiana’s 5K Walk to Fight Homelessness. Through the extraordinary efforts of our dedicated team, we raised nearly $10,000 to support those in our communities who are homeless or at risk of becoming so. Homelessness may not be what you envision – nearly 40% of those homeless are families with young children. Of those who are chronically homeless, the majority suffer from mental illness, as well as physical disabilities. Thanks to the generous individuals listed below who made a contribution through the Homeward Bound website and to the many others who participated in the creative events leading up to the walk, proceeds will be used to help address the root causes of homelessness and provide support and essential early intervention services to those most at risk.
