Bruce Roder Joins Helping People Succeed as Director of Coordinated Specialty Care Team

Bruce Roder Joins Helping People Succeed as Director of Coordinated Specialty Care Team

 

Helping People Succeed recently announced the addition of Bruce Roder to its staff.

Roder, who will serve as Director of the non-profit’s Coordinated Specialty Care Team, has extensive experience in children’s mental and behavioral health fields. He will represent Helping People Succeed in a consortium of agencies and organizations that will work together to fill the Treasure Coast’s burgeoning need for these services.

A resident of Port St. Lucie, Roder has held such closely-related positions as License and Recruitment Specialist at Camelot Community Care, Clinical Services Director at Devereux Community Based Care and Clinical Services Director of United for Families.

His entrée into the field was as a Special Ed teacher in the Denver Public Schools District.

Roder has a B.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a M.A. in Children’s Special Education from University of Northern Colorado.

Roder will oversee the development of new programs at Helping People Succeed, which include a coordinated specialty care team to serve children experiencing a first-episode psychosis or early onset of serious emotional disturbance; a psychosocial rehabilitation program for Martin and St. Lucie County residents aged 18-21; and an after-school program in Martin County for children aged 6-14.

A key component of this intensive wraparound services treatment will be the focus on the individual being treated and his or her own hopes, wants, desires and dreams.

These programs are available for all residents, not just clients currently served by Helping People Succeed.

Suzy Hutcheson, President/CEO of Helping People Succeed says, “The addition of Bruce to our team expands Helping People Succeed’s efforts in providing quality, full-service mental health services in the counties (Martin, St. Lucie, Okeechobee and Indian River) we serve. Children and adults who experience mental health issues will be able to find compassionate care in a timely and professional manner. We welcome Bruce and look forward to working with him.
