Group of community leaders convene around vested interest in mental healthcare and addiction services for Montgomery County residents of all ages
Nashville, Tenn. – Centerstone, Tennessee’s leading not-for-profit provider of community-based mental health and addiction services, convened a group of Clarksville-Montgomery County leadership on October 2 to discuss the importance of localized mental healthcare and addiction service programs for residents of Montgomery County.
This was the first such meeting in Clarksville of the Centerstone Ambassadors Circle, which is a group that works to advance Centerstone’s mission to prevent and cure mental illness and addiction. The group does so by representing Centerstone in the community, creating awareness of behavioral health issues, identifying potential funding opportunities and assisting in fund solicitation to meet established goals.
The October 2 event, hosted in the home of Kay and Larry Martin, saw representation from a variety of local leadership including Hands on Clarksville, Lowes and Sunrise Rotary Club who have recently partnered to show support of Centerstone and its services.
“Centerstone has a huge presence in Clarksville-Montgomery County and has for many decades now,” said Dr. Bob Vero, CEO of Centerstone. “What is now the Harriett Cohn Center, one of Centerstone’s largest outpatient facilities, opened in Clarksville in 1958 and has served thousands of local residents of all ages seeking mental health and addiction treatment since opening its doors. It was wonderful to have dozens of local leaders, community members and even clients of Centerstone programs in the same room on Tuesday evening, to discuss and collaborate on how we can continue to best serve the residents of Montgomery County.”
Currently, Centerstone offers outpatient counseling and therapy for people of all ages through its Harriet Cohn outpatient facility at 511 8th Street in Clarksville. In addition, Centerstone offers School-Based Counseling services in 24 Montgomery County schools, intensive in-home treatment services, foster care and adoption services, mobile crisis services, case management, academy services through Weems Academy and even some residential services for youth and adults, just to name a few.
Centerstone’s Ambassadors Circle works to raise awareness of Centerstone’s programs and initiatives, provide time, talent and resources to the local community and to develop a giving network of supportive businesses, agencies, professionals and individuals.
