President Joty Sikand, PsyD Awarded National Honor

Behavioral Healthcare, the national magazine focused on the business of behavioral healthcare, awards national Behavioral Healthcare Champions each year. The award honors leaders of behavioral health organizations that display a unique combination of dedication, courage, inspiration, and excellence. These champions are making a difference in the development, delivery, and effectiveness of mental healthcare services. Nationally, five 2014 Champions were just selected from the pool of outstanding nominees and The Hume Center is proud to announce that our President, Dr. Joty Sikand, has been recognized as a Behavioral Health Champion!

The editor-in-chief of Behavioral Healthcare had this to say about the awardees: “True leaders create lasting impact, and our 2014 Behavioral Healthcare Champions all have an eye on the future. Their drive to find new and more effective ways to serve their clients is reflected not just in their own organizations’ success but also in the progress they’ve witnessed in their communities. By working tirelessly, each one has implemented an effective business strategy built on courage, dedication and years of experience. The entire Behavioral Healthcare team is honored to name them as our 2014 Champions,” said Julie Miller.

The 2014 Behavioral Healthcare Champions will be profiled in the July/August 2014 issue of Behavioral Healthcare and recognized at a special ceremony during the National Conference on Addiction Disorders (NCAD) and the co-located Behavioral Healthcare Leadership Summit, which will be held at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 22-26.
