Connections is designed to help build and enhance the relationships people need to be successful in achieving their goals. Its purpose is to be an avenue for the exchange of information that includes people’s dreams, stories, concerns, successes, etc. Its intent is to connect us all – the individuals who sit around the board room table, our customers, our administrators, caregivers, and our partners in the communities in which we live. People who are working every day to realize our vision for a higher quality of life for everyone in our communities.
As one of those partners that share that vision for persons with mental health disabilities and substance use disorders, we are sharing this electronic copy of Connections. We hope that you will review it and share it with others.
You may also want to contribute or hear about others experiences. We connect by sharing stories. They create indelible pictures. A simple story can teach us more than reams of prescriptive documents about the important ingredients of effective services. We need your stories so they can be shared with others. If you would like to contribute to a future edition of Connections, please contact the editor (Clint Galloway) CMHAMconnections@gmail.com.
