Philosophy of Care

Bluegrass provides a continuum of services to help children, adults and families reach their emotional, mental and physical well-being through a continuum of care. We focus in the areas of mental health, substance use and intellectual and developmental disabilities. We believe each person deserves supportive, respectful, integrated care that is person-centered and trauma-informed. We tailor services to meet individual needs and achieve recovery. Bluegrass believes all individuals have the ability to improve and change their lives and treatment plans should be client driven. We develop and enhance our services based on outcomes as well as client and community input.

Our team consists of caring and highly skilled individuals who are trained in evidence-based practices and make our clients their number one priority. Bluegrass serves more than 25,000 clients each year. We continually maintain collaborative relationships with community partners throughout our 17 county service area to best serve our clients. The enhancement of the emotional, mental and physical well-being of our community is at the center of everything we do.
