At the Cummings Foundation for Behavioral Health, we believe access to proven and effective behavioral healthcare allows people to realize their full potential and lead lives of dignity and purpose.
We pursue innovative opportunities to advance professional psychology and behavioral healthcare in ways that positively impact society.
“The conviction that everyone deserves accessible mental healthcare energized Dr. Nicholas Cummings during his lifetime. His profound legacy motivates us to challenge the status quo, pioneer new programs and inspire others to bring best practices to their communities.”
Advancing the profession of psychology requires intentional, reasoned action. The work we do in education, research and service is given purpose by these values that guide us.
Our goals are best accomplished by being open to new ideas. To this end, we seek out opportunities to broaden our knowledge and experiences. We reexamine our preconceptions and biases.
Innovation is not a passive pursuit done in isolation. We make every effort to integrate the feedback we receive into our work, and openly share our insights to inspire others.
What we say is what we do. We align our words and our actions, and thus engender trust. Knowing that good failures are integral to experimentation, we own our successes as well as our mistakes.
We don’t have all the answers. By recognizing, welcoming and valuing the strengths of all stakeholders, we build lasting relationships and grow stronger together.
Meaningful change takes time, effort and dedication. We take on challenges with a clarity of focus and an unwavering resilience.
