“I value the sense of community that comes with being involved in not just the Behavioral Health clinic, but in every aspect of the lives of the people I serve. The cohesiveness, or the bond that is felt when family, friends, and community come together in order to strengthen one another in times of need, is truly an integral part of help and healing.”
