Collective (Adj.): Denoting a number of persons considered as one group or whole. A collective body. A cooperative unit.
“The Collective” is a comprehensive, integrative, and evidence based mental health treatment program that provides patient-centered treatment in a safe and supportive environment. We care for individuals who are suffering from mental health challenges that have prevented them from achieving their goals.
We aim to advance the treatment of mental illness by providing compassionate, sophisticated, and outcome driven clinical care. For example:
: We surround our clients with a highly experienced clinical team that puts the individualized needs and goals of the client at the forefront of their care.
: We provide financial transparency to our clients and their families during the admissions process and throughout the duration of care.
: We provide care in a community-based setting where clients are supported, connected, and can safely navigate life’s challenges.
The very heart of our mission is to provide each client with the best possible treatment experience.
A small community of clients allows our clinicians to develop a strong therapeutic alliance, and maintain an emotionally safe environment for each and every client. The team is able to work with each client to develop highly individualized treatment goals, and closely monitor the progress towards achieving those goals.
Our focus on Functional Recovery allows for improved quality of life. The treatment of mental illness extends far beyond symptom reduction. Our focus on functional recovery supports each client in reconnecting to their sense of meaning and purpose, finding joy, and pursuing value based living. We believe that this is how true healing unfolds for each and every individual who seeks treatment at The Collective.

Founded by a board-certified psychiatrist and a licensed psychologist, The Collective team is comprised of highly experienced Doctoral and Masters level clinicians who work with each client in a fully integrated model. At The Collective, clients are thoughtfully matched with a primary clinician that has expertise in treating their specific mental health challenges. Concurrently, the families of The Collective’s clients are also provided with a clinical care team to coach and guide them as they support their loved ones through the treatment process. Care begins with a comprehensive evaluation, followed by the creation and implementation of a true bio-psycho-social and spiritual treatment plan. Our treatment team holds regular weekly meetings to discuss the care of each client, in order to ensure continued progress towards treatment goals.

THE COLLECTIVE APPROACH
TO PROVIDE THOUGHTFUL, COLLABORATIVE, COMPREHENSIVE, INTEGRATIVE + EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT FOR ADULTS STRUGGLING WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES.
The treatment of mental health symptoms cannot be a “one size fits all” approach. We hand-tailor treatment to address individual needs and symptoms.
We have a core belief that, in addition to remission of psychiatric symptoms, quality of life for our clients must improve. Therefore, our community based program is specifically designed for Functional Recovery, Social Recovery, and Mind + Body Wellness.
Most importantly, our philosophy prioritizes a healing environment free of stigma, judgment, and shame.
: Symptom Remission
The first step in meaningful recovery from any mental health challenge is symptom remission. At the Collective, symptom remission is accomplished through a combination of individual and group psychotherapy, medication management, and therapeutic community and activities. Certain individuals may require medication on a long-term basis while others may not require medication at all. Our goal is thoughtful and appropriate medication management.
: Functional Recovery
Our commitment goes beyond symptom remission to enhanced wellbeing. We empower clients to cultivate a sense of meaning, purpose and joy in their lives. We want them to leave with the foundation necessary to build and live a life worth living.
: Sustained Wellness
An individual’s time at The Collective lays an initial solid foundation for learning key tools and practices to support mental health. We also believe in helping our clients develop the skills needed to sustain their well-being over time.
: Connection to Community + Service
We believe that an important part of wellness includes actively connecting and serving the communities that surround you. Our philosophy is one of outreach, public service, education, and supporting underserved populations.
: Best Practice
Best practice begins with evidence based care. The Collective also actively connects with leading organizations and mental health experts to bring together the best resources for all treatment needs. We individualize each treatment plan by matching every client with the clinician best equipped to address their needs.
FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY HELPS CLIENTS NOT ONLY ACHIEVE SYMPTOM REDUCTION BUT EQUALLY ACHIEVE AN OVERALL SENSE OF IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE.
Current studies reveal that evidence based treatment must incorporate techniques for clients to discover ways that increase their sense of joy, fulfillment, meaning and purpose through personal relationships in various settings such as home, work or school.
The Collective addresses social anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of healthy risk taking, fear of failure, and fear of change within Functional Recovery programming. Daily structure is designed to parallel the natural rises and falls of energy clients experience to increase personal stamina when faced with the emotional stressors of the real world.
FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY MODEL GOAL
To help clients discover connection and passion beyond symptom reduction and maintenance. Allowing them to build self-efficacy and self-esteem that values deeper meaning within their personal relationships and environments.
PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH REQUIRES BOTH SOUND MIND + SOUND BODY.
Treatment at The Mental Health Collective integrates both mental and physical restoration. The treatment schedule follows the natural rise and fall of energy that occurs in the body throughout the day. Clients develop a personalized practice of self-care by taking small, self-compassionate steps to increase stamina for the mental, physical, and emotional challenges that inevitably arise in daily living.
Fostering self-awareness enables clients the freedom to explore their own emotions, thoughts and experiences. Time for reflection and self-examination nurtures emotional regulation and ensures the acceptance and ritual of continued wellbeing.

THE MENTAL HEALTH COLLECTIVE COMMUNITY IS MOTIVATED BY TWO COMMON GOALS: CARING FOR OUR PATIENTS, AND ERADICATING THE STIGMA OF MENTAL ILLNESS.
The Mental Health Collective believes in uniting the efforts and expertise of our community to better the lives of those struggling with mental health issues. Our environment houses clinical leadership and patient care in an environment free of shame and stigma.
Our clinical team is a collaborative group of change makers in leadership roles supporting local nonprofits, hospitals, and other mental health related organizations. We believe in the importance of establishing relationships with reputable and ethical members of the mental health community so that best practices are at the forefront of all treatment protocols.
Our treatment team also believes in the power of giving back for our clients as well. We encourage all of our patients to participate in service projects grounded in purpose and meaning. Individuals are encouraged to continue their community relationships upon program completion when possible.
THE COLLECTIVE’S COMMITMENT
According to The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), approximately 1 in 5 Americans are affected by mental illness every year, and yet only 41% of those individuals receive any form of mental health services. Nearly $200 billion a year is lost in earnings as a result of mental health challenges. Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. We must all work together to discover innovative solutions to the burden of illness that so many of us face.
We believe it is our social responsibility to stand up in an effort to eliminate the shame and stigma often associated with mental illness, so that all individuals can access the care they need. We have joined with like minded organizations to share ideas, educate the community, donate time and energy, and raise funds towards such efforts.
To this end, The Collective pledges to donate a percentage of revenue to non-profits working towards treating and de-stigmatizing mental illness.
The Mental Health Collective is delighted to offer small, highly personalized three day retreats.
Our Relaxing Into Resilience retreat is facilitated by psychiatrist and poet, Dr. Monisha Vasa, and senior mindfulness teacher and poet, Cayce Howe. Their combined skill in mental health, creativity, meditation, and meaningful wellness allow for an unparalleled and transformative retreat experience.
