We have received a lot of incredible news with in the past couple of weeks. Toward the end of June we received the Horizon Award from the Community Health Endowment. Lancaster County Human Services Administrator Kit Boesch had this to say about our organization:
"Congratulations to you and your staff for being honored with the Horizon Award by the Community Health Endowment. The leadership of your organization has put Lincoln "on the map" for innovative thinking. Client focused events, locations like the Keya House, and advocacy in general only happens with sound leadership. Thank you for your everyday energy in guiding the Lincoln community toward a better understanding of mental health."
Alongside this tremendous honor from the Community Health Endowment we also received some news from CARF International that our entire organization has been accredited for three years. Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) has been around since 1966 and we have the first consumer run crisis diversion house and other diversion services that have been accredited by their exceptional standards.
This is monumental moment in the history of Mental Health as well as in our organization. We would like to thank the Staff and Volunteers for their tireless work to make all of this possible. We would like to thank the community as well for supporting our organization.
Thank You So Much
Mental Health Association of Nebraska
