It would be almost impossible to raise the bar for excellence in mental health care any higher than the Connections Wellness Group has already set it.
Founded less than four years ago by CEO Awstin Gregg and a talented group of partners, it all began with their desire to create an opportunity for helping individuals achieve a state of overall wellness. The vehicle, according to Gregg’s vision, was a path leading to life-improving solutions that promote lasting and positive change.
As Gregg fleshed out this dream, he recognized the need for a dynamic team that embraced his mission. “My intention was to support that team in every way possible while simultaneously working closely within the community to offer care across all ethnic, social, and economic barriers,” he said. “To me, being able to do that is not only a privilege but an obligation.”
Gregg’s background credentials were well-suited to his vision. He has a Bachelor of Psychology, a Master of Social Work, a Master of Business Administration, and advanced post graduate training in Business Analytics. He was Social Worker of the Year in 2018, Entrepreneur of the Year in 2019, and leads one of the World’s Fastest Growing Companies of 2021.
He sharpened his leadership skills in several roles, including CEO for an inpatient hospital and residential treatment center. He’s felt the weight of leadership stressors, putting him in a unique position to counsel those in leadership positions who experience mental trauma.
“This dream, which started with our Denton facility, has gone from a single office to a total of well over 200 employees spread across what will soon be 14 locations throughout the Metroplex. We anticipate being able to serve well over 100,000 appointments in 2022,” Gregg revealed.
There are no typos in those numbers.
The entire gamut of mental health treatment is available, from general to dissociative disorders, all forms of trauma, geriatric, depression, anxiety with OCD, bipolar, and the list goes on. There are even dietitians to delve into the gut/brain connection.
“The tip of the arrow for us is, and always will be, patient outcomes,” Gregg said in summation. “Our decisions are built around ensuring a uniquely customized standard of care for our individual patients. It is research-based, reliable, and delivered by a highly trained team in a way that produces outcomes that outpace national averages.”
Connections Wellness Group’s success percentages in all categories of mental health care lead the nation, helping to keep their sky-high standard in place.
