ADAMH Board to Honor Behavioral Health Heroes.

The Paint Valley Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADAMH) Services Board has decided to cancel the Annual Recovery Celebration that is normally held in September. The decision was not made lightly, but rather out of the utmost caution and concern for the safety of our guests. While the banquet celebration has been cancelled, the Board will still be honoring the Behavioral Health Heroes that have gone above and beyond to make sure that our residents continue to receive services during the pandemic. As we continue our efforts to support recovery on every level, it is important to take a moment and thank those on the front lines. The pandemic has heightened the need for services in our community and it’s important that we recognize our Behavioral Health Heroes. So many good things are happening in our communities and there is a steadfast commitment to quality treatment and recovery.

Executive Director of the Paint Valley ADAMH Board, Penny Dehner, stated “September is Recovery Month, and it is important to celebrate and honor individuals doing extraordinary work.  The Paint Valley ADAMH Board is so pleased to honor those that are making a difference in our Recovery Oriented System of Care by making sure our communities have the services that they so desperately need.  If you know of someone who has gone above and beyond in the Behavioral Health Community, please consider nominating them for the BH Hero Award.”
