A message from the CEO

Recovery works. At ISK, we recognize that people have the capability to take charge of their lives with adequate supports and services.

Our goal is to help individuals achieve transformational goals of recovery as they define it. I’m honored to work with an immensely talented group of professionals who demonstrate their commitment to this belief every day.

In times of crisis and uncertainty, we have been steadfast in putting person-centered service first.

Whether our community faces hope or hardship, ISK will always remain focused on supporting the people we serve to live their fullest lives.

Thank you for being part of our journey.

ISK’s Commitment to Recognizing Racism as a Public Health Crisis

In January 2021, the ISK Board of Directors passed a resolution declaring racism a public health crisis. The resolution states that ISK is “committed to ending racism, racial disparities, and discrimination in Kalamazoo County’s public community mental health system, and throughout our society.”

This resolution marks a new era for ISK and supports input from many candid conversations with staff and the work of our Trauma-Informed Resiliency Oriented Equity Committee. The following documents support our commitment. For more information, click here.
