“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us”—Ralph Waldo Emerson
This past year is certainly one we will likely remember for a long time. It has been a year of challenges, adaptations, and efforts to keep clients, staff, and communities safe while continuing to offer quality behavioral and physical healthcare. As an integral partner in the communities we serve, Comprehend, for 53 years, is the region’s longest sustained behavioral health provider serving the Buffalo Trace Region.
Comprehend, Inc.’s 2019-2020 year consisted of many positive contributions to the communities we serve including:
As the Regional Community Mental Health Center and the only comprehensive behavioral health provider in the Buffalo Trace region, Comprehend is committed to continual growth in both services and quality of care. The inclusion this past year of primary care services through BTMA has allowed for a fully integrated array of healthcare services. We are committed to providing high quality services in a welcoming and caring environment. Even with all the changes and challenges of this year, we have continued to keep our doors open. We have ensured access to care, availability to crisis services, collaboration and response to our community, and a deep commitment to the provision of quality healthcare for all those we serve.
Looking to the future, Comprehend is poised to continue leading the initiative for improved, sustainable, and innovative integrated healthcare for our communities. We recognize that needs change and we will continue to be on the forefront leading those changes. As your community behavioral healthcare organization, we have risen to the challenge this year has given and we will continue to endeavor to be your provider of choice.
