Letters to the Editor

Grateful for leadership

To the Editor:

Social Connections Group would like to honor Todd Schroll, interim director of the McHenry County Mental Health Board, for providing tangible support and joining us in our commitment to consumer-driven care.

Thank you also to Barb Iehl, community relations specialist for the board, who mobilizes support with voice and action.

At the Mental Health Board, we have received meeting space for our group to use, permission to volunteer in the Healing Garden, places for our artwork to hang on the walls, and partnership in the peer-led Recovery Outreach Center, for which there also is collaboration from many other members of the community and social services agencies.

I have bipolar disorder, and I am proud to be born and raised in McHenry. I have led Social Connections Group, an independent peer recovery group, for two years. My group is grateful for the leadership and innovation of our McHenry County Mental Health Board in our community.
