Paying it Forward...When Reciprocating Means Helping Someone Else
Since the establishment of the Linburn Fund in March of 2015, the lives of more than 20 South Shore Mental Health (SSMH) clients have been infinitely changed for the better, and many today are poised to give back by helping someone else tomorrow. The fund was established with a donation of $50,000 from long-time SSMH psychiatrist Dr. Geoffrey Linburn whose mission is “to serve and sustain those with modest means and help them become productive.” A believer in the pay it forward philosophy, Dr. Linburn is a proponent of supporting activities, education, and training that influence a client’s treatment, improve his or her life, and foster appreciation for the chance to make a positive impact on another individual in need.
Since 1926, South Shore Mental Health has been building hope and changing lives for children born with developmental disabilities, and children, teens, and adults living with mental illness. Today, we have more than 700 employees based in Quincy, Marshfield, Plymouth, and Wareham, and our non-profit early intervention and mental health treatment and recovery programs reach 16,000 people from Boston to Cape Cod.
South Shore Mental Health is dedicated to improving the lives of children born with developmental disabilities, and children, teens and adults living with mental illness.
