We took this mental health organization from a disconnected combo of board members, staff and community workers to an engaged group working together to solve problems and fulfill a shared vision for the future.

Everyone in this mental health services organization is now actively involved in making or carrying out decisions; communication is transparent; roles are clear and staff members are empowered to take on bigger responsibilities. The Executive Director can focus on achieving the vision—versus attending to day-to-day details. And board members have a strong connection to the organization, which helps them implement successful fundraising campaigns.
