KidGlov, a boutique marketing and advertising agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., was pleased to welcome Topher Hansen, president and CEO of CenterPointe, to a recent episode of its Agency for Change podcast. The podcast explored the organization’s many programs supporting those suffering from mental health and substance use disorders.
“CenterPointe is an incredible organization with dozens of programs benefiting the community,” said Kelley Peterson, “At their core, CenterPointe pushes boundaries to find better ways in helping people be well.”
Topher Hansen, president and CEO of CenterPointe has led the organization for over 20 years. Grounded by the solid belief that every person has the ability to recover, CenterPointe makes pivotal treatment available for people suffering from mental health and substance use disorders. Meeting people where they are and supporting them to gain control of their lives is what CenterPointe aims to do. They treat the whole person and offer a full continuum of care including treatment, rehabilitation and housing for individuals who are experiencing homelessness and/or are low-income.
“We’ve listened to the people we serve and understand that in order to address substance abuse issues, we also need to address mental health, primary care and housing,” said Hansen. “That’s how we’ve served for nearly 50 years, by listening to needs and treating the whole person.”
The Agency for Change podcast episode explores the many great works of CenterPointe’s 40 programs and how the organization shifted during the pandemic to adopt telehealth services for supporting growing mental health concerns. Hansen also shares his sustainable-first approach to leadership and how the organization is planning to celebrate 50 years in operation in 2023.
