IHOT Team Earns a Family's Thanks

Recently, a mother of a member from San Diego’s IHOT program reached out via the Telecare website and left a sweet message for staff:

“Your entire staff in San Diego County are the most compassionate, intelligent professional people our family has encountered in the too many years we as parents of a mentally unstable adult have met. We thank every person we even briefly talked to on our son’s behalf. You accepted him. THANK YOU for that. Your positive, sacrificial, professional ‘coaching’ will always be a golden memory. Thank you IHOT San Diego County.”

Clark County E&T: Thankful Tree

Team Telecare at took on the November activity of finding a way to express thankfulness.

Rehab Art Therapist, Tracy Battaglia-Martin, facilitated the assembly of a Thankful Tree for clients to recognize their individual unique strengths that were realized in recovery.

Clients participated by writing on fall-colored leaves with insights such as:

  • “I’m happy to be here. I’m happy to be alive.”
  • “I’m thankful for my life and my health.”
  • “I’m thankful for everyone who has spent time with me at Telecare.”

A very artistic staff member drew the employee tree (pictured here, right) that was covered in leaves on which the staff shared their thankfulness. The tree was then displayed in the main lobby at Clark County E&T.The client tree (pictured above, left) represents the on-going commitment of Telecare to increase the chance that an individual will have a healthy future.

Staff were thankful for many things this year. For instance, their jobs, co-workers, families, pets, freedoms, and health!
