Message from the CEO

A Letter of Gratitude and Good Wishes

Recently, I made the announcement that after 35 years as President and CEO of South Shore Mental Health (SSMH), I will retire in 2017. This was not an easy decision for me. I have always loved my job, and I appreciate how fortunate I’ve been to work with so many dedicated staff and committed board members who share a passion for SSMH and the communities we serve.

It seems like yesterday that I was assigned to South Shore Mental Health in 1971 as Area Youth and Drug Coordinator for the Department of Mental Health (DMH). Later, as DMH Area Director, I developed the successful application to the National Institute of Mental Health that established our organization as a comprehensive community health center, operating many of the programs that continue to this day.
