We want to share with you a local news story that KATU ran yesterday that featured Morrison!
Some of you are aware that the Oregon Legislature made significant investments in Behavioral Health Services in 2022, a decision that was meant to help address the growing workforce crisis in the field. Our CEO, Nick Gallo, has been reaching out to many of the legislators in our community to show our gratitude for these investments, gain visibility for Morrison programs, and form strong, collaborative partnerships with our elected officials.
When KATU contacted Representative Rob Nosse about doing a story on the impact of these investments, he pointed them in our direction! This gave us a wonderful opportunity to publicly thank the legislature and showcase the wonderful services Morrison provides to the youth and families in our community.
The story was filmed at our Gresham Outpatient location and features our CEO, Nick Gallo, as well as Margaret Scott, Division Director. There are also great shots of the Gresham clinic and Outpatient therapist, Amy Lounsbury-Enk, and her lovely office.
