Santé is led by our President and Chief Executive Officer, Fred B. Chanteau, a 40-year veteran of the behavioral health services field. He was a pioneer in the field of community-based services for those with severe and persistent mental illness and development disabilities.
A central theme of his professional career has been to enable individuals with behavioral health challenges to live, work and play in their own communities to the greatest extent possible. This priority has been achieved through the establishment of crisis response services, psychiatric recovery programs, out-patient mental health centers and residential rehabilitation programs and employment services on a regional basis. Each service has been geared to the maximum community of the clients served by Santé.
