DMHAS Commissioner Visits CMHA Social Club

CMHA had the pleasure of welcoming Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) Commissioner Miriam Delphin-Rittmon to our Team Time Social Club twice in November. 

The Commissioner stopped by for a tour earlier in the month and then came back for our annual Thanksgiving luncheon, where she even pitched in to help our Senior Management team serve food!
