Optum believes every person has the right to live in their community with health, dignity and hope.

Mental health recovery is a journey of healing and transformation enabling a person with a mental health problem to live a meaningful life in a community of his or her choice while striving to achieve his or her full potential.

Each of us looks to the community for a wide range of supports – education, housing, health and mental health, employment safety and security, and more. Optum will look to community stakeholders for guidance, input and participation in the ongoing development of effective systems of care.

Our goals are to improve clinical outcomes, expand access to appropriate care, manage costs, and strengthen individual capabilities to pursue wellness and recovery.
