Partnering with you to shape and strengthen behavioral health solutions

Strategies and services developed in close collaboration with schools, health care systems, government agencies and community organizations and agencies represent some of the most promising ways forward.

Hazelden Betty Ford’s consultants and trainers bring research-informed methodologies and recognized best practices to their work with your organization. But more than that, we bring a deep and abiding respect for the life-changing work you do and a desire to learn more from you about your organization’s unique situation and mission.

Our consultative role is as much about empowerment as expertise. And that’s why our Consulting and Training Solutions approach is big on collaboration and innovation at every stage, especially as we:

  • Learn about your organization/community’s distinct experiences, strengths and challenges
  • Identify gaps or limitations in existing services and resources
  • Develop an action plan to address identified needs

We’re ready to listen, learn and work in partnership with you

Collaborative solutions come in all shapes and sizes, but our Consulting and Training Solutions team always starts in the same way: By listening and learning about your organization’s experiences, strengths and needs. This is how we can leverage existing capabilities, amplify promising approaches—and maybe even discover new possibilities in the process.
