Jodi Daly, PhD, is the president and CEO of Comprehensive Healthcare in Yakima, Wash. Comprehensive Healthcare is a nonprofit behavioral health agency that serves eight counties in the State of Washington and offers an all-inclusive continuum of services to those in need of mental health and substance use education, support and treatment. Comprehensive Healthcare has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval, symbolizing the organization’s commitment to providing safe, high-quality and effective care. Dr. Daly has worked in health care for 25 years in various settings and roles but found her niche in community-based mental health – a field that treats clients and their families with compassion and empathy, while focusing on strengths that allow individuals to make informed choices. Additionally, Dr. Daly has been a strong voice for clients, advocating on their behalf for desperately needed funding as well as regulatory and policy changes. She is a member of the Washington State Council for Behavioral Health, the Joint Commission Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Advisory Council and has been appointed to the Governor’s Social Supports Community Leaders Group in Washington. Dr. Daly holds an undergraduate degree in social work, a Master of Arts in counseling and guidance and a doctorate in counseling psychology. She attributes much of her community-based mental health knowledge to the many, varying mentors and coaches she has encountered throughout her career. Their expertise and passion greatly contributed to her professional success and inspired her to serve historically marginalized populations.
