Penn Foundation Named Provider of the Year by NAMI Montgomery County

NAMI_Dinner_2011Penn Foundation has been named Provider of the Year by NAMI Montgomery County (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill), a grass-roots education, support, and advocacy organization founded in 1979 whose mission is to improve the quality of life for those affected by mental illness.

According to Carol Caruso, Executive Director of NAMI Montgomery County, Penn Foundation was chosen for this award because "It is rare when a provider of mental health services embraces the family as a partner in the treatment process."

"Penn Foundation's commitment to seeing the person as a whole and not just an illness is well established," explains Caruso. "This whole includes being part of a family unit, with the recognition that any illness affects the entire family. Penn Foundation lives this philosophy and serves as a model of recovery and family inclusion."

"We are honored to be recognized by NAMI Montgomery County," says Wayne Mugrauer, Penn Foundation President & CEO. "Early in its 56-year history, Penn Foundation recognized that mental health and substance use issues impact the entire family, not just the individual. Therefore, over the years, we have really focused on the family as a whole and developed innovative approaches to care that address not only the individual's issues but also the effect those issues have on the family."
