Devereux celebrates direct support professionals during appreciation week in September
At Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, our direct support professionals (DSPs) play a critical role in improving the lives of children, adolescents and adults living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.
During National Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week – September 8-14 – Devereux honors its 3,500 DSPs who selflessly serve those in their care, helping them lead more fulfilling, productive and socially connected lives.
“We cannot say enough about our talented and hardworking DSPs who provide extraordinary compassion and support to our youth, adults – and their families,” said Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Dr. Rhea Fernandes. “The work they do each and every day is at the very heart of our mission. We are grateful for their commitment and dedication as together we strive to make a difference in the lives Devereux is privileged to serve.”

kindness and compassion. I also love working for an organization that gives us
the tools and training we need to be the best caregivers for our individuals.”
