Wednesday, April 17 - Thomas Eachus, Executive Director of the Blackhawk-Grundy Mental Health Center Inc. shared the history and mission of their Center. He explained how they began in 1949 and have been helping people in the Cedar Valley for the past 70 years. 

The Blackhawk-Grundy Center has a staff of 75 who annually serve over 6000 patients with a myriad of challenges.  Beyond assisting patients in their offices, they provide a variety of services that address each individual's special needs. They help the homeless on the street and prisoners in jail.  They support the needs of children with emotional problems through specialized programs.  They provide therapeutical opportunities to meet the needs of returning combat veterans suffering from PTSD.  

One in every five people struggles with mental illness.  Thanks to Tomas Eachus and the Blackhawk-Grundy Mental Health Center, Cedar Valley has the opportunity to beat these odds.  Thank you for all that you do.  Written by Leigh Zeitz and Lynn Barnes
