Social and economic patterns of exclusion and extraction inevitably contribute to the downturn of local communities because distant decision-makers are often not connected to the place where services are being delivered, nor do they have a non-financial stake in their success. We believe in the sustainability and power of local businesses in their communities, especially when it comes to healthcare.
At the heart of this, we support a new decentralised economic model where money is no longer just funnelled up and out of local communities to a corporate head office. By recirculating locally earned dollars we reinvest in our communities and local economies, improve both quality of care and wellbeing of employees and practitioners and clients. We are contributing to the regeneration of local economies and social capital.
Psy Integrated supports local community-owned centres and clinics because they serve as integral hubs in their communities and in our view provide a more sustainable business model. Those healthcare providers on the ground and connected to their communities have their finger on the pulse and are best positioned to make collaborative decisions with the input and collaboration of local community stakeholders.
