Chrysalis had their 4th annual Success Celebration on November 30th, 2018. This year’s celebration was held at a new location, the Goodman Community Center. With the new looks, came new ideas.

We have visited a group home, referral center, agricultural employment site, I gave a presentation on IPS, visited a cookie production employment site, and was interviewed by the local paper.

In just a few short days I will be leaving Madison and be traveling to Obihiro Japan to visit with different mental health treatment providers. Our trip guide, Jo Oyama Miller, just sent out a tentative schedule for our visit. We also have a final list of who will be making this trip. Ed Erwin […]
