A message from our Executive Director

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, it prompts me to reflect on the many ways in which I am very fortunate.  The first of those is the pride I feel for what an extraordinary organization AACMHA is, thanks to our amazing staff.  They possess a common culture of professionalism, compassion, and respect.  These qualities and a willingness to be flexible, coupled with a spirit of cooperation, make our team stronger in the face of adversity.  We will manage the challenges we encounter and, as always, continue to help the vulnerable individuals and families of Anne Arundel County do the same.

Second, I wish to address those of you that have been directly affected by this disease, personally or through your relatives or friends.  I send you my warmest thoughts and support.  The duration of this has been hard on everyone.  At times it may be hard to optimist, but I ask you to reflect on the many things you have to be thankful for.  Focus on creating new memories during the holidays, and honoring traditions that may need to be modified in order to stay safe.  Remember that we are all in this together and as a community we will continue to thrive.

Happy Thanksgiving

Adrienne Mickler
