Recovery and Resiliency
Recovery and Resiliency: Magellan’s Core Treatment Principles
A job you like. Good relationships with family and friends. Your own home. Most of us take these things for granted. But for many people with mental health problems they are dreams.
At Magellan, helping people reach their goals for a better life is a primary focus. That is why recovery and resiliency are at the core of what we do.
We believe that all people can recover from trauma, tragedy or other stresses. We are all able to go on with life and feel hopeful. That is resiliency.
We believe that all people can learn, grow and change. We are all able to build a life filled with meaning and purpose. That is recovery.
We help individuals and families achieve a number of things through resiliency and recovery:
- A sense of belonging.
- A safe place to live.
