If our employees have a positive disposition, then our clients will be taken care of well. We are grateful to have a wonderful staff who help provide superior care to our clients.”

Since 1999, state psychological associations have been given Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards to all types of organizations – large, small, profit, nonprofit – with support from the American Psychological Association.
