About us.

 

Vision and mission

Our vision at Rise is to transform Michigan’s standard of practice and access to psychiatric care. Our mission is to provide innovative, accessible, personalized psychiatric care that truly heals in body, mind and spirit. 

 

Our core values

Trust — Earning and maintaining the trust of our patients is the core of our practice. We are committed to developing a safe and collaborative relationship with everyone we see. Each patient is a valued partner in his or her own treatment and healing.

Innovation — Technology provides us many new avenues to connect with patients, enhance care, and offer an unmatched and desirable flexibility. The resulting private, HIPPA compliant, and ethical relationship is always best practice for our patients.

Service — We are honored and humbled to be welcomed into our patients’ lives. We take this invitation very seriously and meet our patients wherever they are on their journey, seeking to guide and support them on their path to wellness. We vow to protect the dignity of each patient and always contribute to the common good.

Passion — Mental health is not just something we treat, it’s something we practice, advocate for, and truly believe in! We are passionate about alleviating the stigma of mental health and promoting emotional wellness in all the world.
