Opportunities Week of April 22-26

Be a part of the solution as we work to build a community where families and individuals living with a mental illness feel supported and have the opportunity to live up to their potential. Everyone is welcome. Everyone has a voice. Please join us.

The Education & Programs Innovation Team meets this week. It was formed as a follow up to the Community Conversations held last fall, the first Innovation Team meetings were held in February.

You are welcome and encouraged to attend as many of these Team meetings as your schedule allows. Community input is vital to ensuring the continued success of our endeavor – we would be pleased to see you!
