  • Group questions why program terminated

    We are concerned citizens. We would like to know why our group at Catawba Mental Health Center has been terminated.

    Our psychosocial rehabilitative group has been beneficial to us in preparing us to participate in the community and take better care of ourselves.

    We have enjoyed coming to the meetings two-five days a week. We are shocked and disappointed in changes being made in our services.

    We need services to prevent us from having too much time on our hands.

    This often leads to our being rehospitalized, which costs our state much more.
