Message from our President/CEO
Each time our Board of Trustees meets, we have a mission moment in which a client/patient tells his/her story. Every time I listen to a story, I feel an immediate connection to our enduring mission of almost 95-years. These men, women, and families appreciate our comprehensive approach to treatment through evidence-based practices and targeted case management services – they come to us to learn how to lead a full life. They find hope from our staff.
This issue of our eNewsletter will focus on stories of people whose lives were exponentially changed through their interaction with our staff of behavioral health professionals. While I always feel staff deserve credit for the work they do to help clients/patients succeed, much credit also goes to the client/patient. They have the will to succeed and we support them in their journey. It is my pleasure to introduce you to a few people who, because of our clinical staff and our donors, are better today than they were yesterday.
