What Mental Wellness Means to Us

October 26, 2011 in From the Staff, News

Feeling in control of your life. Being in balance. Peace. However you might define it, mental wellness is a goal that all of us share and strive to attain every day. It is in our nature—often at the center of everything that we do—which is why I’m extremely proud to announce that is now part of our name.

After 40+ years of providing mental health services in Placer County, Sierra Family Services is officially now known as Sierra Mental Wellness Group. With offices in Roseville, Auburn, and Tahoe City and therapists based off-site in Truckee and Lincoln, Sierra Mental Wellness Group, or SWMG, is providing services to the entire family throughout the county. A name change was in order to reflect the metamorphosis of the agency over the past four decades and to truly reflect our future and our services.

As part of a capacity building grant by the Community Benefits Grants Program of Sutter Roseville Medical Center and Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital, Sierra was awarded a one year contract with 3fold Communications, a marketing company in Sacramento. Experts in working with for profit and nonprofit groups, 3fold helps develop nonprofits in the areas of brand management, board development, fundraising, strategic planning, and much more.

Although our name has changed, Sierra’s mission stays the same: to provide the best possible mental wellness care in Placer County. We know that we play a vital role in our community’s outlook on health, improving our patients’ lives in the process.
