Dear Sussex County community and all of our Delaware friends and families,

I want to personally welcome you to SUN Behavioral Delaware. As a mental health and substance use disorder treatment facility, we help people of all ages – from children to seniors – with a full range of inpatient and outpatient programs.

At SUN, our compassionate team of expert professionals is here for you and your loved ones when you need us. Our mission is to work within the community to solve the unmet needs of those who suffer from mental illness and addiction. We are committed to four key values that we embrace in our clinical philosophy:

  • Safety: promote an environment of healing
  • Teamwork: maintain a positive attitude and commitment to others
  • Integrity: do what is right even when no one is watching
  • Compassion: communicate hope in everything we do

I’ve spent more than 25 years working directly with patients, and maximizing the positive impact of community, caregivers and families working together. At SUN, our continuum of care focuses on those same outcomes, meeting patients where they are in their journeys for improved mental health. We work with our patients to help them achieve stability, hope and strength. Empowering each one to return to his or her family, employer and community as a contributing partner. Our programs save lives — and more than that they enhance lives.

The need for quality, compassionate mental health care has never been more profound. I’m excited to continue exploring new and innovative ways to help our most vulnerable neighbors, and I welcome all corners of our community to contribute to that process. I’m honored to serve as SUN Delaware’s Chief Executive Officer, and on behalf of our entire staff, we look forward to continuing to bring hope, healing, recovery, passion and compassion to those who need it most.

Thank you for visiting our site and thank you for entrusting SUN and our dedicated staff to care for you and your loved ones. Please know that we are available 24/7, whenever you need us.

Sincerely,
Ann Wayne

SUN Delaware
Chief Executive Officer
