Tracy Hopkins, Business Development Director at outBACK Therapeutic Expeditions, when asked about the current momentum in diversity and inclusion efforts in the field, shared “We are at a crucial point, not only in our lives but within the field of private pay behavioral healthcare. The hope is that we, as an industry, are able to take this time to take personal inventory as well as examine our respective programs and practices to better understand what the issues are, to begin to create strategic planning for sustained improvements. It has to be an honest examination of why we - as an industry - are lacking both in a diverse pool of staff as well as clientele.”
