Health in Dubuque
ACCESSIBILITY: All people in the Dubuque area who are dealing with mental health challenges should be able to access a full continuum of quality services. This includes: inpatient, outpatient, community based and peer support services.
FLEXIBILITY: Services need to be tailored to fit the individual’s needs instead of requiring the individual to fit the service delivery system.
COLLABORATION: It is essential that service agencies and advocates work cooperatively to identify mental health issues present in the community and develop solutions.
QUALITY: All individuals in the Dubuque area should receive appropriate, flexible, uncompromised mental health care that improves their quality of life.
DIGNITY: All persons need to be treated with dignity and respect when receiving mental health services. Our goal is to eliminate the stigma that is too often present.
