When I met with Charcy "CC" Rogers to discuss all of the amazing things going on with HamiltonDavis Mental Health, I was truly blown away by the amazing team that she works for. CC works alongside the powerduo Marie Hamilton-Abston and Essie Florence, whom she affectionately refers to as her "SHEroes" to form a trio that is taking Mississippi healthcare, advocacy, and awareness by storm. I had the pleasure of interviewing CC individually, but had to double back and chat with the whole team of Dope Black Women.
HamiltonDavis Mental Health, Inc. is a new venture that is looking to transform the mental health care experience through a culture of caring, quality, safety, innovation, service and support excellence, and be recognized by employees, physicians, patients and the community as the best place to work, the best place to practice medicine; and the best place to receive mental health care. We are known as an excellent community citizen, embodying an organization of people working together to do the right thing every day to improve the mental health and well-being of those we serve.
Their mission is to make a difference in the lives of individuals with a mental illness and/or intellectual and developmental disability by becoming the provider of choice by exceeding the expectations of those we serve by providing exceptional, patient centered, evidence-based, mental health care.
Like I've said before, as a mental health and wellness advocate, I wholeheartedly believe that the work that is being done in Mississippi is setting the tone for an amazing shift. There are tools and resources being created to ensure people are being not only cared for but are also being given the necessary skills to care for themselves.
