Meridian, a private, non-profit organization, has its roots in the community mental health movement that began in the 1960’s to bring education about mental illnesses and substance use disorders and treatment for those affected to the local level. Created as a tax-exempt entity in 1972, Meridian has been a part of the lives of thousands as we provide a safety net for those in crisis, a source of effective treatment, and a contributor to the health of the entire community.
Our mission – To promote the health, recovery, and well-being of those affected by mental illness and substance use disorders through prevention, coordinated treatment, and supportive services is evident in all we do; from developing a continuum of treatment services that are evidence-based for a range of illnesses to participating in our communities as a partner in enhancing the quality of life. We are guided by values laid down by our volunteer Board of Directors and our vision, a community in which hope, recovery, and wellness are within everyone’s reach.
Working at Meridian and helping people every day is filled with intrinsic rewards; after all, our staff help change people’s lives, every day. Further we strive to keep our staff engaged and have fun doing so. Beyond that, we offer a competitive array of benefits including: Health, Dental, Vision, Life Insurance, Long-Term disability, Employee Assistance Program, Retirement options and generous Personal Time Off.
At Meridian we welcome all people regardless of age, gender, religion, education, race, nationality, ethnicity, family circumstance, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical or mental ability. There’s a place for each and every person who is prepared and wants to help us continue our mission by contributing their unique and individual talents. – less
