"I have had the great fortune of partnering with MHCGM for over 15 years. Over this time I have collaborated with the staff at MHCGM on a range of different treatment programs for people with a major mental illness. Illness Management and Recovery, Integrated Treatment for Dual Disorders, Family Psychoeducation, Supported Employment, Cognitive Rehabilitation,
and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for PTSD are examples of the programs we have worked on together. The consultants, trainers, and research staff at MHCGM are outstanding, and serve as an example to the field of how strong leadership and a commitment to excellence can lead to first rate services and training opportunities for other mental health professionals."
~Kim Mueser, Ph.D, Dartmouth Medical School, Psychiatric Research Center, Concord NH

"The training and consultation services MHCGM provided helped us to make the Illness Management and Recovery practice (IMR) available to many clients with mental illnesses and co-occurring substance use disorders. They provided training in a number of sites across the state and were well received by our practitioners. They were very responsive to our needs and to the specific challenges of providers in Montana's more remote locations."
~Deb Sanchez, Ph.D, MPA; Mental Health Clinical Program Supervisor, Montana Dept. of Public Health and Human Services; Helena, MT.
"MHCGM provided effective services to help us implement the Recovery Management program (our name for IMR) across 8 offices in Riverside County. Their trainings were well received by our staff, and the materials and consultation they provided contributed to the success we have had at offering our consumers this valuable new practice."
~Tina Cho, LMFT, Staff Development Officer, Riverside County Dept. of Mental Health. Riverside, CA.
"We have collaborated with MHCGM since 2010. They have provided us with effective services to implement the Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) program within Danish community mental health centers in connection with a research study. They have provided training, fidelity assessments and consultations during visits to Copenhagen, and live supervision via Skype.
During our working relationship with their Director of Consultation, Education and Research, Harry Cunningham, we have always experienced a high level of quality, flexibility and professionalism. In addition, MHCGM and Harry Cunningham have been indispensable in helping to arrange a series of study visits for a qualitative research on IMR in New Hampshire CMHC’s that was then compared to an identical study done with Danish sites."
