Quentin’s Place Score 98/100

Hats off for a job well done to all of our Quentin’s Place staff! Jennifer Munoz- Tevez and her Team have hit the ball out of the park during the HatsOffASO audit/quality review held on November 15 and 16, 2017. Felicia Blash assisted Jennifer with much of the follow-up and cross-checking to make sure that no stone was left unturned. A big shout out also goes to Lisa Montford, Marsha Williams, Larry Brown, and Tina Clements for pitching in across the months to make sure everything was in place before the reviewers arrived! We also want to send unlimited thanks to Dr. Bill Chism, Dr. Rob Shuman, Rosemary Johnson, PA, and Jennifer Cox, NP for all of their help in making sure “every I was dotted and every T was crossed”. Our Team finished the survey with a score of 98/100! Congratulations on this remarkable accomplishment!

CSBMG SHOUT OUT to Mandi Evans and the Soar Clubhouse Youth

Please give a rousing CSBMG SHOUT OUT to Mandi Evans and the Soar ClubhouseShoutOut Youth for being tapped by Sally Vander Straeten, DBHDD Suicide Prevention Coordinator, and Shevon Jones, the Prevention Specialist with the GBI Child Fatality Review Unit, to participate in the filming of a Public Service Announcement.  Our youth will join other youth from the Sources of Strength Team in Cobb County to participate in the production of the PSA.

Key messaging on how to deal with stress, connecting with trusted adults, where to turn for help and how to know when you friends need help are some of the common themes that will be highlighted in the PSA.  Our Sources of Strength Team will also have input into what key messages need to be conveyed in a peer-t-peer message.

Congratulations to Mandi and our Soar Clubhouse Youth Team on this recognition, and the honor of being able to participate in this important Public Service Announcement.
