Working on the SMHAC drove home to me how important it is to help support families when they have a child or other family member with a mental illness. Our family has dealt with chronic illness. It was amazingly helpful to me to have members of my community reach out and provide support as we worked to deal with managing illness.
I am attaching the final report from the SMHAC. I would welcome discussions about the recommendations and the work of the committee. I think we did some good work, but there is more to be done.
