BHAR’s mission is visualized in our logo.
The BOX represents a patient’s feelings of being trapped, either in their behavior or their legal outcomes.
The EVERGREEN TREE represents their ability for growth; the off-centered placement shows the freedom for that growth; and the strategies, tools, and resources BHAR provides are “evergreen” resources they will use for life.
The BREAKTHROUGH of the evergreen crossing over the top of the box represents the breakthroughs patients experience with BHAR’s expertise.
And the B & H of “BHAR” is reflected in the tagline: The Difference Begins Here.
