About BasePoint Psychiatry & Wellness
In 2012, according to the Mental Health America Non- Profit Foundation, Texas ranked dead last, 51 out of 51, in their annual survey detailing access to mental health services in America.
Father and son duo, Roy and Blake Serpa, founded BasePoint psychiatry with Dr Robert Strayhan in 2019. Roy had 38+ years experience in Healthcare leadership by then, but when Roy and Blake lost Brittney in 2012 to bipolar and suicide, it opened their eyes to the current behavioral health system in Texas. The Serpa family had fielded countless calls in the middle of the night, and frantic text messages – because friends and family knew their story and felt comfortable talking about their own families struggles with them. Through that process, the Serpa’s decided to solve the gap in access to quality behavioral health services in DFW and across the state.
Today, the Serpa’s personal experience directly impacts how they recruit, develop, and lead staff at BasePoint Psychiatry. BasePoint employs a servant leadership corporate model as an organization. This model flips traditional leadership upside down and focuses on how to support, develop, and mentor employees. This model provides industry leading staff satisfaction, minimal employee turnover, and ultimately, better patient outcomes and satisfaction.
