“I love getting together at these meetings because there are so many inspiring people, and some of it’s the leadership of NACBH and board members, some of it is people you’ve just never met before.  It’s the most important organization I belong to, and I’ve been around a long time.”

– Gail Atkinson, Vice President, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health
