Supervising for Resilience

Research shows that frontline staff in health and behavioral health settings thrive when they have strong supervision.  Staff succeed when they work in an environment that is culturally responsive, the scope of their work is clear, and they are well supported.


Supervising for Resilience is a 6-month, 30-hour training and coaching series for  those who hire, lead, and manage frontline staff.  It will provide practical skills and tools and will result in a happier, healthier, more effective and stable workforce.

NEON is a connector, innovator, and expert resource

Rural Oregon communities are under-resourced, particularly in their capacity to support the health of residents. As a result, barriers to community health can be enormous—providers experience gaps in funding, technology, and training; community members commonly have limited access to information and care. Our mission at NEON is to create a healthier Eastern Oregon. We accomplish this by reducing barriers for both residents and the systems that support their health. We are connectors, innovators and experts. We connect people and organizations to one another and to resources they need to meet their goals. By thinking out of the box and harnessing the creativity of our communities, we help lead the development of solutions to the unique challenges faced in our region. We make it our priority to learn and share policy, practice, and tools that will help others accomplish more. We believe that by working together, the communities of rural Eastern Oregon can move from surviving to healthy, happy, and thriving.
