"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

-Shannon McParland, Principal, Sioux Trail Elementary

"Discovering Headway"
New Video Tells Our Story

Last spring Headway conducted its annual client satisfaction survey. The feedback was outstanding and humbling.

  • 94% are happy or extremely happy with services they have received at Headway
  • 93% agree or strongly agree that Headway is helping them make progress in the area that brought them to us
  • 92% would recommend Headway to a friend or co-worker

What is the secret of our success?

We are proud to debut "Discovering Headway" a video that embodies the spirit of Headway Emotional Health Services.

Composed of employee interviews, the video shares the spirit and attitude of who we are and why we do what we do.

The video was created to share what we learned this past summer and fall in a process intended to give us a better picture of the "soul of Headway."

Aptly called the Discovery Project, in-depth, peer interviews of nearly 50 staff revealed five core themes about Headway - passion for what we do, a spirit of innovation, organizational support for learning, connectedness to each other and the community, and focus on the people we serve. The interview process identified these themes as central to the services we provide and the organization wide commitment to supporting our clients.

Camera...Action! The outcomes of the project were so clear and powerful, we decided the best way to share the Discovery story was to show it through the very people who make Headway what it is -- our employees -- and the concept for the video was born.

Discovering Headway: Passion. Focus. Innovation. Learning. Connectedness.

Stay Tuned! A great deal of wonderful video footage remains from our filming. We will be sharing the stories and messages in the coming weeks in other videos that will highlight other facets of this varied and talented organization. In the meantime, we hope you will take a few minutes to hear from our staff "Discovering Headway" - we promise you will be inspired.
