Dustun has over 10 years of experience delivering and coordinating mental health and behavioral support services along side children, adolescents, young adults, and families within the surrounding community that are experiencing mental, developmental and/or behavioral health needs. He has worked with youth and families within the school, home, and community environments to provide behavioral interventions or support services as well as team care coordination.
Throughout his career, Dustun has delivered strengths-based wraparound services to multiple youth and families within Ford, Iroquois, Vermilion, and Champaign counties. During his time as a wraparound care coordinator, Dustun has gained extensive knowledge in working alongside families to co-develop a family-focused and team-based plan of care that identifies strategies, providers, and resources that coincide with the need of the family and youth.
It is Dustun’s goal to be a supporter and connector for individuals and families that have endured adverse life experiences and are in need of community services that not only extend to mental health but physical health as well. It is in his belief that the link between mental and physical health has a great importance to an individual’s social well-being, cognitive development, and overall health.
