  1. Advisory/Behavioral Health Support Teams

    Thank you all for your combined efforts to shore up mental health…as indicated in early 2008 from correspondents from then candidate US Senator Obama indicating a true concern regarding mental health not only in our schools but our communities as well. I am proud to say that the now President of the United States of America has kept true to his word in allowing stimulous funds to assist our city regarding the current crisis we face here in Chicago he has also extended this concern to a national concern from top to bottom. I say this to inform our readers that stimulous does’nt began at the local level it began with President Obama and his Administration. My friends this is not the time for celebrations it is time for more strategic preparation, there is much to be done. And to the advisory members I would only recommend that you send a letter of congradulations to President Obama ,Mrs. Obama and the children and please don’t forget to thank the President for the Stimulous….National Advisor/ Local Advisor Ricardo Bradford .
