This is how a community member described the event:
"Thanks for the invite for tonight. It was great. I learned so much about the services that are offered. It is a very different approach to mental health and recovery than I had envisioned. I loved being able to hear about the variety and depth of care offered. The table handouts were powerful. I also loved the stories. That is what touched me the most. I think it was amazing to hear an employee story as well, even if it wasn't planned. It was perfect. I also loved the Q and A part at the end. The last part was impactful when the lady (staff member Stephanie Prejean) spoke about the philosophy of each person being an expert on his/her story (life) and each journey being unique. It sets Meridian apart as client/student focused. I gained a better understanding that Meridian helps empower people to reach their goals and life purpose, not necessary what the doctor sees as "normal behavior." I gained wisdom but also expanded my heart for those just trying to build back their lives in a healthy way. What you are all doing is so important!"
We enjoyed beautiful music from Dave Desmelick!
