Strength in Numbers

Directors of behavioral health provider organizations are increasingly called upon to make difficult financial, legal, technological, and employment related decisions above and beyond their clinical responsibilities. In the extremely fast-paced environment of change we find ourselves in these days, it is helpful to confer with colleagues facing similar decisions. But change is not something simply to be endured. We are living during an exciting period of transformation. Together, we have the ability to actively shape and define the world in which we live.
