Clinic receives MHRL grant, clinical manager receives award

WOODSTOCK – Family Health Partnership Clinic of Woodstock has received a $11,552 grant from the Mental Health Resource League of McHenry County.

MHRL is an all-volunteer organization which supports mental health-related services in McHenry County and raises its funds through two initiatives, the Fair Diddley and Fall Diddley craft shows. MHRL gave more than $200,000 in grants to 19 agencies this year.  Since its inception, the league has provided more than $4.75 million in funding to organizations in the county.  

Diane Fuller, the clinic’s clinical manager, received the league’s annual Major Leaguer Award for going above and beyond to provide help to those in need. 

“Diane is a tremendous example to all of our staff and volunteers.  She is tireless in her efforts to help patients access the care they need and break down the barriers that often stand in their way,” said Kathy Rauch, volunteer coordinator for the Family Health Partnership Clinic. 

The Family Health Partnership Clinic provides healthcare to the uninsured and underinsured of the McHenry County area.  For more information, visit www.hpclinic.org, or call Cathy Patenaude at 815-334-8987, ext. 24. For more information on the Mental Health Resource League, visits www.mhrl.org .
