People involved with CMHA/Fort Frances Branch experience an organization that strives to be the best, is open to change, eager to learn, and committed to community health. We partner with other mental health, health, and generic service providers as well as businesses, educational institutions, provincial and regional governments. We work within a framework of support, built on equity, balance, and respect. We respect all facets of diversity and a person’s right to make decisions for him or herself, while balancing what is best for individuals with the overall impact on the community. While hierarchy is necessary for order and maintaining distinct roles within the organization, a flat leveled organization is what staff experience on a day-to-day basis. Backed by solid structure through sound policy and procedures, all levels of the organization are accessible. Accessibility is an asset, since everyone has a unique contribution to make. Not only is input valued, it’s acted upon.
