What it’s all about…building relationships to change the world one person at a time. Right?!?
I had the opportunity to attend the Seeds of Hope Gala hosted by the New York City – NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) organization this past month. This event honored extraordinary local leaders in the mental health community whose dedication, knowledge and vision have helped pave the way in reducing the stigma around mental illness. It was an evening of mingling, food, silent auctions, honorees and distinguished speakers such as Rep. Patrick Kennedy, Dr. Lisa Dixon, Shari Goldfarb and our host for the night – Chris Noth “Mr. Big”.

Happy Thanksgiving from Team Netsmart!

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving from Team Netsmart!
Reflections on Connections
“Together, we can positively impact the lives of more than 25 million people. We at Netsmart rise each day passionate about this opportunity.”
The assertion above can be found in the “about us” section of the Netsmart company Web Site. Can you guess which word is most important to us? Passion is certainly up there. Opportunity? Yes, we believe in seizing it. But it’s “people” that are at the core of who we are. And that’s what stood out at Connections 2014 – our annual conference with clients that was held this year in Anaheim. Continue reading Reflections on Connections
I think the thing that struck me the most is how sad it is that there were so many people there. The fact that there are that many people that have been impacted by suicide is heartbreaking…and some of those folks were impacted multiple times. Except for the high winds, it was a very beautiful day and the walk around the park was very serene. A nice time for reflection.

Coffee, conversation and building new friendships…
Here at Netsmart we like to be “unique”. We are not going to be like the other cookie cut outs and it may not appear to be all neat and clean around the edges, but that is how we like it. I am coming up on my one year anniversary here at Netsmart and I have been reflecting on my time here. What makes us different? What are my struggles and is it possible that others are feeling the same? The phrase “we move at the speed of thought” rings in my ears daily. As a new associate I own my own success. I want to be in the driver seat and I hope others feel the same. With that said, Netsmart Managers and Peer contacts own this process as well. Peer contacts and managers are the front line for our newbies. A peer contact can be a resource, a crutch and the sounding board. As a peer contact you are able to bridge the gap between being overwhelmed with information overload. Continue reading We are family… Coffee, conversation and building new friendships!
