Farewell to Addy O'Neil

Dear MHA Supporters,

It is with mixed feelings, I announce the departure of Adrienne O’Neil (Addy), Suicide Prevention and Outreach Coordinator, who has been with MHA for the past 11 years.  Addy will be leaving to continue her studies and pursue a Master’s degree in Social Work.  Her last day with Mental Health America of WI is June 16, 2017. 

This is definitely a loss for the agency as Addy has been a wonderful asset to MHA and the entire mental health and suicide prevention community.  She will be greatly missed.   

A farewell message from Addy-

“I wanted to take a moment to first thank you all for your friendship, knowledge, guidance, and support while in my position as Suicide Prevention and Outreach Coordinator. I have gained such valuable insight and have been so inspired by the champions in the field of suicide prevention and mental health. I’ve learned so much in the years I’ve been with MHA, and even though I will miss my time here and the amazing people I’ve met along the way-I am looking forward to new challenges, experiences, opportunities and starting this next chapter in my life. I am and always will remain dedicated to the work that we do every day and will continue to be an advocate in suicide prevention and mental health.  Thanks again!”  ~ Addy

MHA is beginning the process of hiring someone to replace Addy. In the meantime, Shel Gross  and Karissa Vogel will be supporting all suicide prevention and early intervention program related activities.

Thank you Addy for your unconditional commitment and dedication to MHA throughout the years and thank you to everyone who continues to support MHA and our mission.
