1 Our Values Communication Compassion Education Hope Professionalism Respect Teamwork Trust Inside this issue: From the Director Update on Person -Centered Care NMSH News Friends of NMSH 4 Volunteers of the Year Shivangi Named Board Chair; Mikula Named ED 5 6 New Beginnings Dickerson and Callens Honored at Joint Conference The Mississippi Department of Mental Health (DMH) met recently for its 31 st Annual Joint Mental Health/ Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Conference in Biloxi. With the theme Moving Forward: Innovation, Integration and Intervention, the Conference trained leaders throughout the State in practices to improve the care of those being served by DMH. Lori G. Dickerson was honored with the James C. Stubbs Volunteer Award. This Award is given to a person who has demonstrated a continuing interest and effort in providing volunteer and advocacy services to citizens of Mississippi with mental health needs and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities. The award is named in memory of James Stubbs whose career in mental health began in 1950, when he served as staff assistant for the Board of Trustees of Mental Institutions, the state s predecessor to the Mississippi Department of Mental Health. Ms. Dickerson has been a member of Friends of NMSH for ten years and is the immediate past president of the board of this organization. She has participated in fundraisers, Christmas activities, and special events. One year she personally made throws for 82 clients for Christmas. All of the time she has spent with those served has allowed her to encourage them in their recovery process. The greatest gift Ms. Dickerson has given NMSH has been her advocacy role. She has very often written letters and made phone calls to legislators on behalf of NMSH. In the summer of 2010, when the seated Governor was calling for the closure of this hospital, she came to the director and asked, What can I do? This led to her first public talk about her experience with clinical depression at a public meeting attended by 300 people, fifteen of whom were Mississippi legislators. In December of that year, she wrote her story as an editorial for the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal; it was picked up by papers across Mississippi. Because of her excellent talk at the NMSH public meeting, she was asked to speak at a statewide Legislative Appreciation Breakfast in February of 2011 and again at a rally at the State Capitol to urge funding to allow NMSH and other DMH facilities to stay open. Her efforts played a big role in NMSH s being open today. NMSH Director Paul A. Callens (pictured with DMH Executive Director Diana Mikula and Deputy Director Matt Armstrong) was chosen to receive the Albert Randel Hendrix Memorial Leadership Award, which is given to a Mississippian who has demonstrated exemplary leadership in the field of services for persons with mental illness and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities. The award is named for the former executive director of DMH who, at his retirement, was the longest serving executive director of mental health services in the nation. Callens began his career with DMH in 1991 when he joined the staff of Mississippi State Hospital as an Associate Psychologist. In 1994 he joined the DMH Central Office staff as a Program Planner/Evaluator. He was one of the first administrators to be chosen for the intensive Administrator in Training program. Upon completion of that program, he was assigned to NMSH as Assistant Director. In 1999, he was named Director, the position he holds today. Continued on page 5 Fall 2014

2 New Beginnings From Our Director Our Vision is to be a leader in partnering with a coordinated network or community based services and supports that is personcentered and builds on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families and communities to achieve improved health, wellness and quality of life for those with mental illness. Our Mission is to provide the highest quality acute psychiatric care for Northeast Mississippi adults in the process of recovery. Fall has arrived and we are seeing changes around us each day the air is a little cooler, the leaves are changing colors, and folks are already making plans for the holidays. Other than the days getting shorter, it is an enjoyable time of year. It is a reminder that nothing stays the same and we must be adaptable. As we reflect on what we do here at North Mississippi State Hospital, we must also be adaptable willing to embrace change and its positive effects. Our focus has always been on serving individuals and helping them get better. For some time now we have been expanding our mission to focus on more than just their improvement. We are now focusing on their recovery. It is our sincere hope to be conduits for the individuals we serve that enable them to approach life with a recovery oriented focus recognizing that not every day is a success, but the effort is. We look forward to our future as we endeavor to create new beginnings. I hope you will enjoy reading about the activities going on at North Mississippi State Hospital that are turning our mission into a reality. Update on Person Centered Care The NMSH staff and friends provided a team for the Northeast Mississippi Walk to End Alzheimer s in September. The team and the hospital joined together as a sponsor and a fundraising group to provide $1,490 to the efforts to end Alzheimer s and other dementia-related diseases in our State! Congratulations, NMSH employees! A year ago NMSH announced plans to work toward a recovery-oriented, person-centered system of care for those we serve. This past year has been spent in careful preparation, planning, and beginning that program. Staff has been and will continue to be trained in this new way of thinking about serving those entrusted to our care. Clinical staff have worked hard to incorporate this approach, while still keeping the best of the treatment model in place. It is good to report that several people have been admitted and cared for using this model and it seems to be working. Not only that, the three Community Mental Health Centers with whom we work also seem to have worked this programming into their approach to community-based services. NMSH continues to look forward to giving those we serve the hope that recovery is possible and the self-respect that comes from knowing that they are not identified as a diagnosis, but as a person who has an illness that can be treated.

His leadership resulted in the hospital s being the first DMH facility to receive full accreditation from The Joint Commission. He holds a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Mississippi State University. He is a Certified Mental Health Therapist, a Certified Mental Retardation Therapist, a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator, a Certified Public Manager, and a Licensed Administrator for the Department of Mental Health. Dr. Callens completed the State Executive Development Institute at the Stennis Center at MSU. He is a past recipient of the DMH Bradley A. Sanders Award and was named to the Top 40 Under 40 by the Mississippi Business Journal. Dr. Callens has had the opportunity to be at the beginning of many exciting changes in mental health in our State. He was part of the leadership for the opening of NMSH, the first state hospital opened in over 100 years in Mississippi. During his tenure, the template for programming the crisis intervention centers was developed at the Corinth and Batesville centers. He is now leading his NMSH team in a transition to a recovery oriented system of care for those served by the organization. It was fitting that this change began during the 15 th year of operation so that changes were made to the vision, mission and values of NMSH to reflect a more person-centered attitude to the work being done here. Dr. Callens is the Mississippi representative and current secretary for the board of the Southern States Psychiatric Hospital Association. He is a member of the Mississippi Hospital Association s Society for Behavioral Health Services, the American College of Healthcare Executives, and the Association of Behavioral Healthcare Management. Volunteers Making a Difference NMSH has been blessed with volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of those we serve. It has been a privilege to recognize two special volunteers in the last two years. Faye Hurt of Okolona was named Volunteer of the Year for Mrs. Hurt spent countless hours providing monthly birthday parties for those in our care for several years. She baked cakes and planned each party around a special theme, making the day special for everyone in attendance. She often arranged for special guests, such as the Brewer Opry and the Hot Springs Hotties, to entertain. Mrs. Hurt also made it her goal to beautify the flower beds on campus. Now the beds at the entrance are a source of pride for the staff and make our entrance much more pleasing for everyone. Mrs. Hurt is now serving as a Peer Support Specialist and offering Horticulture Therapy for those we serve every other week. She continues her volunteer duties as a member of our Friends of NMSH Board of Directors. Every once in a while an angel appears at your door. Such was the case when Rev. George Vance came to our campus and told us that he just felt like he had something to offer our residents. After a visit with Volunteer Director Sommer Armstrong and Program Director James Coniglio, Ph.D., they agreed! Rev. Vance began by offering a chance to talk to those who wanted to come and visit. He talked about whatever was on his heart to share. Now he offers the Bible Study every other Wednesday morning. Those who take the time to spend time with Rev. Vance find him to be a helpful and compassionate man and they look forward to his visits. For that reason, he was chosen as the NMSH Volunteer of the Year for Both volunteers have also been recognized by the Mississippi Hospital Association for their work with those in our care. Congratulations to these two excellent and compassionate volunteers!
